MANILA, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 24th Jul, 2021 ) :-- The Philippines' Department of Health (DOH) reported on Saturday 6,216 new COVID-19 infections, bringing the total number of confirmed cases in the Southeast Asian country to 1,543,281.
"The unusually high number of deaths reported today can be attributed to a backlog of cases being updated after the resolution of the system error," the DOH explained, referring to the technical glitch that marred its data reporting system this week.
The DOH reported Saturday that it had detected additional 17 new Delta variant cases, raising the country's tally to 64.
