MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Health (DOH) logged a total of 1,682 infections from June 6 to 12, slightly higher than the total recorded in the previous week.

Based on its latest weekly report, the DOH on Monday said the new cases translated to an average of 240 cases per day, 30.4 percent higher than the previous week’s average of 185 cases.

Meanwhile, eight or 0.48 percent of these cases were tagged as severe or critical, while five new deaths were added to the country’s COVID-19 death toll.

Despite the growing cases and the additional number of severe or critical cases, the number of patients suffering from critical or severe infections of COVID-19 decreased from 599 last week to 498 (11.3 percent of total COVID-19 admissions).

ICU-bed utilization rate, however, increased from 14.7 percent the previous week, to 16.6 percent. The same went for the healthcare utilization rate which increased from the previous week’s 18.1 percent to 20.3 percent.

In terms of vaccination, fully-vaccinated individuals are now at 69,759,711 (77.51 percent of target population) after 271,191 additional individuals were vaccinated in the past week.

Individuals with booster shots, on the other hand, totaled 14,526,648 after 214,142 additional individuals were inoculated in the same period.

Based on the DOH’s COVID-19 tracker on its website, the COVID-19 caseload is currently at 3,693,222 as of June 12, with active cases sitting at 2,918, recoveries at 3,629,843, and 60,461 deaths

This comes after infections have been noted to have been slightly increasing in the past few weeks, which experts attributed to neglected health standards.

The DOH had also previously announced that it had detected local transmission of both the BA.2.12.1. and the BA.5. — both of which, according to health experts, are feared to be highly transmissible and can even evade vaccine protection.
