Philippines health officials reported 1,383 new COVID-19 cases today, bringing the overall tally to 238,727.
The Department of Health (DOH) notes that only 88 out of 115 laboratories submitted data Monday.
15 additional COVID-19 related deaths were reported. The Philippines has now reported 3,890 deaths.
The COVID-19 Task Force in the country said Monday the public should not be complacent after experts reported that the country is starting to flatten the curve of the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
Experts at the University of the Philippines say the country has sustained the flattening of the curve.
However, Secretary Vince Dizon, NTF deputy chief implementer said the public should not be complacent.
He said the government still needs to intensify its intervention and should be consistent in imposing all precautionary measures so that “we can even lower the confirmed cases and the spike of cases can be prevented nationwide.”
