BREAKING: The country’s COVID-19 tally hits 803,398 with 8,355 more infected, the DOH reports. Of the total, 143,726 are active cases.

Recoveries grow to 646,237 with another 145 confirmed, while 10 new fatalities raise the death toll to 13,435.
The DOH says three testing laboratories failed to submit their reports on time and were not yet included in the latest count.
The DOH earlier warned that the country may see an 'artificial' decline in new COVID-19 cases in the next few days because dozens of testing laboratories halted operations during the Holy Week.
