Over four months since quarantine measures were first imposed on our country, there still seems to be no end to the COVID-19 crisis. The number of confirmed cases in the Philippines continues to rise, and it's alarming that we're already nearing the 100,000 mark.

What's even more alarming is that the Department of Health (DOH) logged a total of 4,063 new confirmed cases today, July 31, breaking yesterday's single-day record for new cases (3,954).  The agency said in its announcement that 3,813 cases (94%) from today's tally occurred in July.

Out of today's total cases, 2,267 were recorded in Metro Manila, 654 in Cebu, 200 in Laguna, 123 in Rizal, and 117 in Cavite. The data was gathered from the total tests by 74 out of the 91 labs.

As of this writing, the cumulative number of confirmed cases has risen to 93,354.

The DOH also reported 165 new recoveries and 40 deaths today. This brings the total reported recoveries to 65,178 and the total reported deaths to 2,023.
