MANILA — The Department of Health posted 8,920 new Covid-19 cases on April Fools’ Day.

That number shoved the country’s caseload of the virus to 756,199 that followed a series of single-day record surges as the month of March closed out.

The DOH said Thursday’s development remains unclear whether the additional infections of 8,920 already include results or not from antigen tests within ‘NCR Plus.’

At a glance:
Active cases: 138,948 or 18.4% of the total
Recoveries: 205, bringing the number to 603,948
Deaths: 6, or now 13,303 total tally
