    NOTE: The staggering increase in number of recoveries was based on the time-based tagging methodology (cases with mild disease or asymptomatic whose date of onset of illness or specimen collection was more than 14 days ago and shall be tagged as recovered as per DOH DM 2020-0258) from the enhanced data reconciliation efforts with local government units.

    The same reconciliation effort also explains the 3,954 new cases reported today, of which 1,320 cases are fresh cases, and 2,634 are late cases. Of the new reported cases, 3,801 (96%) occurred in July, of which, 1,602 (42%) were from NCR and 955 (25%) from Region 7.

    Meanwhile, death toll climbed to 1,983 after 23 more patients succumbed to the respiratory illness.

    President Rodrigo Duterte is expected to announce the new quarantine classifications Thursday night.
