The Philippine National Police (PNP) logged its 56th death due to the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19), according to a report by Philippine News Agency.

In an update on Friday, Lt. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar, PNP deputy chief for administration, said the latest fatality is a 50-year-old police non-commissioned officer assigned to the Criminal Investigation and Detection Group who passed away on Thursday.

Reports said the cop classified as a person with comorbidity received his first dose of Sinovac vaccine on March 31.

A week after inoculation, he experienced headache, sore throat, cough, and difficulty of breathing. His swab test result yielded a positive result.

On April 15, he was admitted to a hospital in Batangas. His oxygen saturation continued to plummet to critical levels.

He was scheduled for hemoperfusion on April 28. However, he was put on a waiting list for the procedure as hospitals both in Calabarzon and Metro Manila are in full capacity.

Meanwhile, the PNP logged another 198 recoveries, raising the recovery tally to 18,372.

It also reported an additional 147 cases, 143 of whom are new infections while four are reinfections.

The police force has so far recorded a total of 20,150 Covid-19 cases, with 1,722 active cases.
