Fifty-one percent of intensive care unit beds for patients are occupied, while 30 percent of ventilators are being used.

As the number of cases continues to rise, the Department of Education on Friday announced that President Rodrigo Duterte has approved its recommendation to move the opening of School Year 2020-2021 from August 24 to October 5.
