DFA: Covid-19 among Pinoys abroad now 8,301 after reporting 2,160 fresh cases


- Advertisment -

The Department of Foreign Affairs announced that Covid-19 cases among Filipinos abroad is now at 8,301 after reporting 2,160 new cases on June 22. 

The new cases were reported in the Middle East and in Europe. 

Meanwhile, the total number of patients who have recovered from the virus overseas saw an increase of 2,193, bringing the total number to 5,055. 

A total of 2,740 Filipinos are still being treated; 506 have died, including 10 new fatalities. 

“The 76% and 35% increase in the new confirmed cases and new recoveries, respectively, are due to accumulated late reports from some countries in the Middle East observing strict confidentiality and privacy laws,” DFA said in a statement. 

“It was worth noting, however, that the share of total deaths against the total confirmed cases decreased to 6% compared to last week’s figure at 7.7%,” it added.
