99% of the new cases occurred within the past 14 days. Metro Manila, Calabarzon, and Central Luzon are the top regions with active COVID-19 cases. 

According to DOH, twelve laboratories were not able to submit their data. These laboratories account for 4.2% of tested samples. 

As of today, there are 181,016 reported active cases. Health experts say that this is lower than the actual number as Filipinos across the country struggle to access testing. 

Across the country, Intensive Care Units (ICUs) are at 41% capacity; while Manila has a 54% occupancy.
