TAGBILARAN CITY – Eight new COVID-19 fatalities were recorded in Bohol province on Thursday, bringing the death toll to 422.
Data from the Emergency Operations Center (EOC) of the Bohol Inter-Agency Task Force (BIATF) showed that the deaths are consistently being recorded per day.
From Sept. 16 to 23, there were 50 fatalities recorded.
On Sept. 19, there were 23 deaths recorded; six deaths were recorded on Sept. 20, another six deaths were recorded on Sept. 22, seven deaths on Sept. 22 and eight deaths on Sept. 23.
However, the BIATF explained that the deaths were reported post mortem, adding that not all deaths occurred today but more than a week ago.
The task force added that additional deaths in the report was not due to overnight spike but due to more accurate data collection and validating efforts.
Based on the active cases in the province, currently at 2,116, the trend remains to be increasing this month. There were 169 new cases recorded as of Thursday.
The province’s hospital occupancy rate is also high, moderate risk to critical risk- indicating that admissions are continuous in government and private hospitals with dedicated COVID-19 intensive care units and isolation beds.
