DoH says COVID fatality rate in capital at 1.5%, not 5.36%

The Department of Health (DoH) on Friday said the case fatality rate in Metro Manila is almost 1.5% during the past two weeks, lower than the 5.36% reported by the OCTA Research Team on Wednesday.

Health Undersecretary Rosario S. Vergeire, in a virtual briefing, said, “As of April 15, our case fatality rate in NCR (National Capital Region) is 1.46%. We compute the case fatality rate based on the number of deaths from this specific disease, which is the COVID-19, over the number of confirmed cases.”

OCTA said the 5.36% fatality rate from March 28 to April 13 was almost thrice the 1.82% recorded from March 1 to 27. It said this could be attributed to the “overwhelmed” healthcare system and the more transmissible coronavirus variants infecting patients.

The Health department on Friday reported an additional 10,726 cases of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19), bringing the total to 914,971.

Biden administration proceeding with $23 billion weapon sales to UAE

WASHINGTON – U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration has told Congress it is proceeding with more than $23 billion in weapons sales to the United Arab Emirates, including advanced F-35 aircraft, armed drones and other equipment, congressional aides said on Tuesday.

A State Department spokesperson said the administration would move forward with the proposed sales to the UAE, “even as we continue reviewing details and consulting with Emirati officials” related to the use of the weapons.

The Democratic president’s administration had paused the deals agreed to by former Republican President Donald Trump in order to review them. The sales to the Gulf nation were finalized right before Trump left office.

The Trump administration told Congress in November it had approved the U.S. sale to the UAE as a side deal to the Abraham Accords, a U.S.-brokered agreement in September in which the UAE agreed to normalize relations with Israel.
