The Philippines on Monday logged fewer than 1,000 new COVID-19 cases for the first time in 2022, day before Metro Manila shifts to Alert Level 1.

The day's tally of 951 infections brought active cases to 52,179, with a total of 1,717 new recoveries and 50 new deaths reported.

Overall, a total of 3,661,997 COVID-19 cases have been reported since the pandemic began in March 2020, of which 3,553,367 have recovered and 56,451 died.

Alert Level 1 is the lowest set of restrictions under the five-tier alert-based COVID quarantines.
