Meanwhile, 93.8 percent of the active cases are mild, 1.1 percent are asymptomatic, and 1.58 percent are moderate.

The DOH reported an average of 68 deaths in its case bulletins from July 2 to 27, lower than the average of 107 deaths from July 14 to 20. However, the DOH earlier said that glitches in the COVID Kaya system, a platform for COVID-19 information management, have affected the reporting of the outcomes of the cases—whether they have recovered or died—in the recent days.
