MANILA, Philippines — Another officer of the Philippine National Police succumbed to the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) as the agency tacked on 47 new cases among its ranks, it said Sunday.

The latest casualty, according to the PNP health services in its latest bulletin, is a police non-commissioned officer stationed in Police Regional Office 6 in Fort San Pedro, Iloilo City.

Also added in the latest update were 68 new recoveries, bringing the total to 7,005 cops who have recuperated from the virus.

With 24 total deaths, the agency caseload of 7,466 brings the number of active cases to 437 sans deaths and recoveries.

On Friday, the PNP also recorded 74 new cases of the new pathogen.

The Philippine National Police currently runs its own testing laboratories and quarantine facilities in and out of its national headquarters in Camp Crame.

Earlier, retired Police Gen. Archie Gamboa, PNP chief at the time, said that the high recovery rate was due to “intensified” mass testing carried out in its facilities.
