DOH did not approve the calls of the COVID-19 mass testing in March, citing the government was “not yet ready” due to the shortage of resources.

As of April 4, 2020, there are now 1,014,296 people across the globe who tested positive of COVID-19. The death toll meanwhile reached 52,982, while 208,000 patients recovered.
