MANILA (Reuters) - The Philippines' health ministry on Saturday reported 239 new coronavirus deaths, the second-highest daily increase in casualties since the pandemic started, and 2,240 infections.

 

The previous daily high death toll was 259 deaths reported on Sept. 14.

 

In a bulletin, the ministry said total confirmed cases have increased to 559,288 while confirmed COVID-19 deaths have reached 12,068.

 

President Rodrigo Duterte is to decide next week whether to further loosen coronavirus curbs in the capital, Manila, to allow more economic activity.

I just read where they want to set a national standard for travel to help open up domestic travel.  I have remained safe because the Govenor of the province has strict restrictions on travel. 

This could be bad.
