The Department of Health earlier reported that the confirmed nCoV cases in the Philippines are now approaching the 5,000 mark.
As per DOH’s 4:00 PM report on April 13, 2020 there are 284 new confirmed cases which brings the total count to 4,932. Likewise, the health agency also announced 45 new recoveries and gives 242 total recovered patients while there are 18 new deaths and brought the total death toll to 315.
Almost a week ago, President Duterte approved the extension of the Luzon-wide lockdown until April 30 to stop the spread of the deadly new coronavirus.
“We will most likely see the effect of the enhanced community quarantine in mid-April… That is why we are asking for an extension till April 30, so we can measure the full effect of the… (quarantine),” said Cabinet Secretary and spokesperson of IATF.
