Of this, 96.3% are mild, 2.4% are asymptomatic, 0.5% are severe, and 0.5% are in critical condition.

“Moreover, 5 cases that were previously tagged as recoveries were reclassified as deaths after final validation,” the DOH said.

Data from the DOH showed that 60 percent of the country s intensive care unit beds are in use while 43 percent of the mechanical ventilators are occupied.

Meanwhile, the OCTA Research group said COVID-19 cases in Metro Manila between March 25 and April 1 only grew by 19% compared to the previous weekly increase of 60%.

Meanwhile, the government is eyeing to ramp up COVID-19 tests from 80,000 to 90,000 per day in Metro Manila and nearby provinces.
