The Department of Health logged 1,923 new coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases on Oct. 23, bringing the nationwide tally to 365,799, as thirteen laboratories failed to submit reports on time, according to a report by GMA News.

Total recoveries rose to 312,691 after 424 more patients recovered from the illness while 132 new fatalities brought the death toll to 6,915. The newly reported number of fatalities is the second highest figure recorded in October.

Of the new cases, 91 percent or 1,923 acquired the virus in the past 14 days. A total of 12 cases were removed from the total case count.

Seventy-six of the new deaths reported occurred in October, 30 in September, nine in August, 14 in July, one in June, and two in April.

There are also 46,193 active cases undergoing treatment or quarantine, of which 83.6 percent are mild, 11.3 percent are asymptomatic, 1.8 percent are severe, and 3.2 percent are in critical condition.

At present, the country has 150 licensed laboratories that have tested over 4.2 million individuals. At least 44 percent of the country’s intensive care unit beds are occupied while 22 percent of the mechanical ventilators are in use.

Meanwhile, results of a clinical trial in India showed that using the blood of recovered COVID-19 patients — or so-called convalescent plasma — as a potential treatment is of little benefit in helping hospitalized patients fight off the infection.
