The Philippines registered a record new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases and recoveries on Thursday, sending the country’s total number of infections to 89,374.

The Department of Health reported 3,954 additional infections—the highest number of cases in a single day since the outbreak began in the country.

Of the newly-announced cases, 1,703 cases were from Metro Manila. NCR was followed by Cebu with 958 cases, Laguna with 177, Rizal with 90 and Cavite with 87. 

The DOH also logged a staggering 38,075 new recoveries. This raised the total number of Covid-19 survivors to 65,064.

The agency said the massive jumps in the number of new cases and recoveries were attributed to the department’s data reconciliation efforts with local government units.

But the death toll reached 1,983 with 23 more people succumbing to the illness.

The number of active cases stood at 22,327, 88% of which are mild cases.
