Spread of COVID-19 in the PhilippinesCurrent incidence in the week ending 06/04/2023: 8.2 new infections per 100,000 population
Since the beginning of the pandemic until June 4th, 2023, a total of 4,139,295 infected people and 66,466 deaths have been reported in the Philippines.
The total of 4,139,295 infected people currently represents 3.8 percent of the total population. The number of new infections during the seven days preceding June 4th, 2023, was 9,028, for a 7-day incidence of 8.2 cases per 100,000 population. Since the outbreak of the pandemic, this results in a mortality rate of about 1.6 percent in the Philippines.
Current vaccination statusAccording to official WHO data, a total of 189.32 million vaccine doses have been administered as of March 19th, 2023. More recent data are not yet available to WHO. There are 82.68 million people who have received at least one vaccination (75.5 percent). The booster vaccination was received by 23.81 million people (21.7 percent).
78.44 million of these are considered fully vaccinated in the Philippines (= 71.6 percent).
This means that the Philippines are still among the fairly good midfield countries in terms of vaccination coverage. The vaccination rate is higher in 79 countries.

* The number of people suffering from diabetes refers only to inhabitants aged between 20 and 79 years.
* DTP is a combined basic vaccination against diphtheria, pertussis (whooping cough) and tetanus, which should be given to children up to the age of 23 months.
In the Philippines, 22.9 percent of all over 15-year-olds are still smokers.
Medical suppliesMedical care provided by doctors and hospitals in the Philippines is below average compared to the world population. The country provides 1.0 hospital beds per 1,000 inhabitants. The global mean here is 2.9 beds. Within the EU, 4.6 beds are available for every 1,000 residents.
With about 145,000 physicians in the Philippines, there are about 1.28 doctors per 1000 inhabitants. Here again the comparison: worldwide this standard is 1.50 physicians per 1,000 inhabitants and in the EU is 3.57.
Through medical care, the mortality rate of major known diseases can be reduced as far as possible. For example, only about 25 percent of all people who suffer from cancer, diabetes, cardiovascular diseases or chylomicron retention disease (CRD) currently die.
Drinking water supplyExplanation of the graph:
Red line: access to water supply via wells or delivered drinking water
Green bars: Permanent access to running and tested drinking water connection
Only around 47 percent of the population has access to an immediately available running water supply. At least via springs and wells within a maximum distance of 30 minutes or supplied water, 94 peprcent of the population is supplied with largely clean drinking water. In a global comparison, only about 74 percent of the population has direct access to tested and always available drinking water. Within the European Union, this share is 98 percent. Only in a few countries does the proportion fall below 10 percent.
