The Philippines reported 3,550 additional COVID-19 cases on Wednesday, bringing the total to 272,934, as 53 areas in the country.

According to the Department of Health, this is the 9th straight day that additional cases were more than 3,000.

Before that, the Philippines saw a decline in cases, with the daily tally dropping to just around 1,000 to 2,000.

Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire said earlier in the day that the continued increase in COVID-19 cases is due to multiple factors, and that the daily tally of additional cases is from both regular and delayed reporting of laboratories.

Of the additional cases on Wednesday, 1,459 are from the National Capital Region, the epicenter of the COVID-19 outbreak in the country.

The majority or 84% of the additional cases occurred in the last two weeks.

The total number of recoveries is 207,858, while the total number of fatalities is 4,732.
