LINGAYEN, Pangasinan – The Provincial Health Office (PHO) recorded 1,048 new recoveries from coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) on Sept. 14, another highest single-day tally in the province of Pangasinan.
Based on the PHO Covid-19 tracker, the province, including Dagupan City, has 20,759 total recoveries as of Tuesday.
PHO chief Dr. Anna Ma. Teresa de Guzman said most of the Covid-19 patients in the province are asymptomatic or just experiencing mild symptoms as some have already been inoculated against Covid-19, resulting in high recoveries.
“It can also be attributed to the expertise, commitment, and passion of the health workers supporting the Covid-19 patients, as well as the readiness of the hospitals with equipment and medications for coronavirus,” she said in a radio interview on Wednesday.
Due to the high recoveries being recorded for the past days, the active Covid-19 cases in Pangasinan continue to decline with now 4,207 active infections.
The data, however, showed that 540 new Covid-19 cases were recorded Tuesday, pushing the total number of infections to 25,813.
The PHO also reported five new deaths due to the dreaded virus, bringing the total fatalities to 847.
Meanwhile, de Guzman urged the public anew to get vaccinated once jabs become available to them, and religiously adhere to the health and safety protocols to prevent the further transmission of Covid-19 in the community.
The PHO earlier reported 807 recovered Covid-19 cases on Sept. 1, the first highest single-day tally in the province. (PNA)
