MANILA – The Philippine National Police (PNP) has logged only seven new cases of the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) among its personnel.

In its Covid-19 cases update released Wednesday, PNP data showed 37 new recoveries for a total of 41,862 since the start of the pandemic.

Cases nationwide are on a downward trend with only 849 new Covid-19 cases, the lowest single-day case count for 2021, logged on November 16.

More Filipinos are protected against the disease. As of November 15, the total number of vaccine doses administered has reached 70,677,771. Fully protected Filipinos are now at 31,868,120.
