Yesterday, the DOH reported its highest COVID-19 recoveries in one day at 38,075. However, upon closer inspection, it turns out that the DOH data team implemented a mass recovery adjustment, which means to say that all mild and asymptomatic cases have been re-tagged as recovered. Specifically, what the DOH data team did was to create this new category of MASS RECOVERY, referring to mild and asymptomatic people who the DOH now consider as “RECOVERED” after 14 days of symptom onset. Most of these mild and asymptomatic cases reported by DOH were from June to mid-July using July 29 data, as seen in the blue line below, and who are NO LONGER mild and asymptomatic yesterday, as seen in flat green line.

THIS MAJOR CHANGE IN DATA REPORTING IS UNACCEPTABLE, NEARLY SIX MONTHS INTO THE PANDEMIC.

In fact, this new approach of tagging mild and asymptomatic patients is misleading and insulting to Filipinos. The DOH explains that this is a new protocol observed in the United States Centers for Disease Control and Protection (CDC), Europe CDC, and India:

However, upon checking, the following is the screenshot of European CDC discharge criteria:

Even Senator Joel Villanueva, a known Duterte ally, questioned the DOH’s reporting of the mass recovery category. “Yung reporting style ng DOH, mas malala pa sa pabago-bago ng panahon.

“38,000 recoveries in one day only shows there’s a problem with data interpretation. Worse, it’s giving people a false sense of security. Instead of mass testing, it became mass recovery. Mas kapani-paniwala pa ngayon ‘yung mga palabas sa perya kaysa sa mga binibigay sa’ting reports (Carnival shows are more believable than the reports we’re given),” Villanueva added.

 

What is the result of the mass recovery category ng DOH? Ganito: PEOPLE WHO ARE STILL POSITIVE WITH COVID AS PROVEN BY SWAB TESTS CAN BE CONSIDERED NEGATIVE AND THUS FREE TO GO OUT TO INFECT OTHERS.

 

What’s our message here? DOH, STOP DECEIVING FILIPINOS! Grabe kayo!
