The day's total brought the total active cases to 37,377. The Department of Health also reported 260 deaths and 2,109 recoveries.

Since the pandemic began in March 2020, the Philippines has a cumulative total of 2,797,986 cases, 44,085 deaths and 2,716,524 recoveries.

Alert Level 2, the second lowest under a five-step quarantine system, in Metro Manila will last until Nov. 21. Under this level, businesses can operate at up to 70% of their outdoor capacities, and up to half of their indoor capacities for fully vaccinated individuals. 

Colleges and universities may hold in-person classes subject to health protocols. Children will also be allowed outdoors for leisure and school activities under Alert Level 2.
