The Philippine National Police (PNP) on Thursday said active cases of coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) have exceeded 3,000, according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

This, after 450 new cases raised the total active case tally to 3,262 out of a total of 44,635 confirmed infections since the start of the pandemic.

A total of 31 new recoveries, meanwhile, brought the recovered cases to 41,248 while the death toll remains at 125.

Earlier, PNP chief Gen. Dionardo Carlos said many of the Covid cases among police personnel developed mild symptoms, which will only need home or facility isolation.

Carlos assured that the surge in infections will not affect the operations of the police force.

The PNP has added more quarantine facilities and beds inside its headquarters in Camp Crame as it continues to see a spike in Covid-19 infections among its personnel.

Meanwhile, the Kiangan Emergency Treatment Facility remains the primary quarantine facility in Camp Crame for Covid-19 cases.

Carlos also noted that asymptomatic personnel could go on home quarantine but need to submit their regular body conditions to the monitoring medical team.

"Patuloy ang pagbibigay tulong sa ating mga pulis na nasa quarantine facilities at maging sa kanilang dependents. Hindi rin po tayo tumitigil sa pagbibigay ng booster shots upang mas lalong malabanan ang naturang virus (We continue to aid our police officers in the quarantine facilities and even their dependents. We also continue to give booster shots to better fight the virus). With the rising number of positive cases in the police force, rest assured that our operational capabilities and performance will not be hampered,” he said.

PNP records also showed that 216,166 personnel (95.93 percent) have been fully vaccinated, while 7,824 (3.47 percent) are waiting for their second dose.

About 1,343 PNP personnel (0.60 percent) have yet to receive any dose of the vaccine.
