Topping the list of areas with new cases are Davao City with 140, Quezon City with 93, Cavite province with 87, Laguna with 83, and Manila City with 67.

There are also 10 new recovered patients or 458,206 total recoveries.

Of these, 84.3% have mild symptoms, 5.6% are asymptomatic, 6.2% are in critical condition, 3.4% have severe symptoms, and 0.58% has moderate symptoms.

Monday’s additional cases do not include data from 3 laboratories that failed to submit results on time.

The DOH has recorded relatively fewer cases during the holiday season due to limited testing by the laboratories. Output of the accredited testing laboratories was estimated to have gone down by 30%, resulting in lower positive cases.
