MANILA, Philippines — The Department of Health on Sunday confirmed 73 new local cases of coronavirus disease (COVID-19), bringing the national tally to 380.

There are now 25 total deaths and 15 recoveries as of Saturday night, Health Assistant Secretary Maria Rosario Vergeire said in a telephone interview over radio station DZBB on Sunday morning.

Vergeire said that the continuing number of high cases, after the highest single-day spike was recorded Saturday at 77 infections, was due to stabilizing laboratory capacity.
