MANILA — Health authorities on Sunday, June 27, 2021, logged 6,096 new coronavirus cases, pushing the country’s total to 1,397,992.

The Department of Health (DOH) said three laboratories did not submit testing results.

Active cases: 52,570, or 3.8% of the total

Recoveries: 6,912, bringing the number to 1,321,050

What’s new today?

Nearly 250,000 doses of Moderna’s Covid-19 vaccine are expected to reach the Philippines tonight. It will be the country’s first-ever supply of the jab.

OCTA Research said herd immunity is achievable in the National Capital Region and neighboring areas by Christmas, but only if authorities manage to keep out the Delta variant at home.

Still from the panel of experts: Fr. Nicanor Austriaco, O.P., said even they are divided on the use of face shields as additional protection for Covid-19. (✓)
