The Philippines on Sunday logged 3,050 new COVID-19 cases, the lowest single day increase for 2022 so far as the omicron surge continued to slow signs of slowing down.

The day's tally brought active cases to 81,394 , with a total of 5,811 new recoveries. No new deaths were reported due to technical issues in extracting data from COVIDKaya, the Department of Health's COVID-19 reporting system.

Overall, a total of 3,637,280 COVID-19 cases have been reported since the pandemic began in March 2020, of which 3,500,956 have recovered and 54,930 died.

New quarantine classifications are due on Feb. 14, with authorities saying Alert Level 1, the lowest set of restrictions, could be declared once certain indicators are met.
