(Eagle News)–Forty-three more police personnel have recovered from COVID-19.

The Philippine National Police said with the additional recoveries, the total COVID-19 recoveries among police personnel rose to 9141.

Twenty-four additional cases, however, pushed the total to 9645.

Of these, 476 were active.

No additional death was reported, which means the PNP COVID-19 death toll remains at 28.

The police are among the country’s frontliners amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The government said uniformed personnel, including the police, are among the priorities in a COVID-19 national vaccination program.

The Food and Drug Administration has so far approved the emergency use authorization for Pfizer-BioNTech’s vaccine, with others underway.

The government said it was targeting inoculation of 50 to 60 percent of the population to achieve herd immunity.
