The Philippines on Monday, Sept. 13, reported over 600 more cases of the highly transmissible Delta variant.

The Department of Health said more COVID-19 cases are expected in the next few months as the government shifts its resources to whole genome sequencing and scales down its RT-PCR testing to detect more variant cases.

PNP Chief Guillermo Eleazar has said over 40 percent of the national police force has been fully vaccinated.
