HEALTH WORKERS INFECTED BY COVID-19 IN PH EXCEED 7,000
The Department of Health (DOH) reported that health care workers infected with COVID-19 in the Philippines had reached 7,006.
The DOH COVID-19 Situationer Report on Monday also logged 6,448 recovered health workers while the number of fatalities remained at 40.
This brings the number of active cases or those still infected with COVID-19 to 518.
This does not include the Philippine General Hospital doctor who died after battling the coronavirus disease for more than a month.
The DOH earlier said their raw data shows a total of 53 health worker deaths, but they are still validating the 22 other cases.
The initial 31 fatalities already had compensation checks delivered to their families.
