The Philippines now has 118,122 active COVID-19 cases, or patients who are currently sick, an all-time high since the pandemic began, according to a report by Rappler.

On Saturday, March 27, the Department of Health (DOH) reported 9,595 additional cases, bringing the total confirmed cases in the country to 712,442. This is the second time the country reported a single-day tally of over 9,000 cases.

For 10 straight days, the country has been reporting over 5,000 new cases. Just this week alone, at least 56,386 new cases were reported, excluding duplicates removed by DOH.

The number of new cases recorded in March alone already surpassed the country’s record in August, when new COVID-19 cases reached 127,465. There have been at least 136,090 new cases recorded since March 1.

The DOH also reported 10 new deaths due to COVID-19, bringing the death toll to 13,159. Meanwhile, recoveries are up by 481, raising the total to 581,161.

The DOH reported the latest figures as the Inter-Agency Task Force on Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF) recommended to President Rodrigo Duterte that "NCR Plus" – Metro Manila and the surrounding provinces of Bulacan, Cavite, Laguna, Rizal – be placed on enhanced community quarantine (ECQ), the strictest quarantine measure in the Philippines.
