The Health Agency announces 863 new cases with positive rate reset to 10.3% today. Note that the number of tests done yesterday only amounted to 8000. The prevalence data does not depict the real picture of COVID-19 in the country, hence, precaution is still highly recommended during the long holiday ahead.
There were 30 added deaths today.
