The number of confirmed coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) cases in Manila reached 2,019, according to Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso.

About 629 recovered from the disease while 120 died, he said.

Data from the city government showed that the first district in Tondo still has the highest number of COVID-19 cases in the city with 350 cases. It is followed by the second district in Tondo with 148 cases, Sampaloc district with 137 cases, and Sta. Cruz district with 122 cases.

Domagoso said they have conducted over 130,000 polymerase chain reaction (PCR) and rapid tests for the city’s residents and employees as of Monday noon.

The city government’s health officials, he said have performed a total of 13,211 PCR tests and 120,830 rapid tests.

Domagoso said that they are waiting for the Department of Health (DOH) to grant a license to operate their own testing laboratory.

The city government built its own COVID-19 testing laboratory at Sta. Ana Hospital, where the Manila Infectious Disease Control Center (MIDCC) is also located.

“So far, we passed so many tests already,” the local chief executive said. “Hopefully, mabigyan na tayo ng green or go signal ng ating Department of Health (the DOH can give us the green or go signal),” Domagoso added.
