MANILA — The Department of Health (DOH) has on Monday (20 April 2020) logged in 200 new patients with confirmed coronavirus cases, pushing the country’s total of impacted individuals to 6,459.

Recoveries, meanwhile, marched on to 613 after 41 more patients beat the killer virus that rendered more than half of the world’s population under total or partial lockdown and the economy in tatters.

Fatalities, the DOH said on its 4 p.m. report, were recorded at 19 more people who succumbed to the killer virus. In all, PH’s death toll is now 428.

There are only 10 more days left of the 15-day extended lockdown in the entire island of Luzon, and health officials said the numbers or statistics shall determine whether another extension will be considered after the April 30 deadline.

As it is, health experts and government officials are waiting for strong and solid evidence or signs of the virus slowing down and “flattening of the curve.”
