These figures bring the overall tally of active cases to 56,921 and the death toll to 22,312.

The DOH said about 92.6 percent of the active cases are mild, 3.2 percent are asymptomatic, 1.3 percent are critical, 1.7 percent are severe, and 1.18 percent are moderate.

"There were 15 duplicates removed from the total case count as 12 of these are recoveries. Moreover, 65 cases previously tagged as recovered were reclassified as deaths after final validation,” it said.

DOH data on June 8 showed that 12.8 percent of 51,688 who were tested turned out positive for Covid-19.

All laboratories were operational on June 8 while four laboratories were not able to submit their data to the Covid-19 Document Repository System.

To date, 57 percent of 1,900 intensive care unit beds, 49 percent of 13,500 isolation beds, 48 percent of 6,000 ward beds, and 36 percent of 2,000 ventilators dedicated to patients with Covid-19 are in use nationwide.

Based on data in the last 14 days, the four non-reporting labs contribute, on average, 0.52 percent of samples tested and 0.43 percent of positive individuals.

Meanwhile, 49 percent of 700 intensive care unit beds, 38 percent of 3,800 isolation beds, 35 percent of 2,200 ward beds, and 34 percent of 800 ventilators dedicated to patients with Covid-19 are used in the National Capital Region.
