The Department of Health (DOH) said that from June 13 to 19, the Philippines added 3,051 new Covid-19 cases, up by 82 percent compared to the total from June 6 to 12. Despite this, the Philippines is still at a low risk level.

In a media briefing on June 22, Health UndersecretaryMaria Rosario Vergeire said the NCR’s Covid–19 cases continued to increase since mid-May as it surpassed 200 cases per day.

She said the Philippines detected 32 new cases of the Omicron BA.5 subvariant cases in the country.

Of the 32, four are in the NCR, 21 in Region VI, four in Region IV-A, and three in Region III. Sixteen of them have recovered, 14 are in isolation, and two are being verified.

Vergeire said the positivity rate in the NCR is now at 4.4 percent compared to the previous less than one percent.

“Previously, we were recording less than 100 cases per day in the National Capital Region,” she said, emphasizing that despite the increase in cases, the number of severe and critical cases has not increased.

The Muntinlupa City government reiterated its call for the public to follow health standards including the wearing of face masks and frequent hand-washing, and to get vaccinated.
