According to the Department of Health, OPLAN RECOVERY was an “initiative” that the department had activated in order to keep an eye on the statuses of confirmed coronavirus cases, particularly with recoveries and fatalities.

Through the said initiative, the data collection, validation, and reconciliation of information was enhanced between the central and regional offices and the local government units (LGUs).

Since its activation, the Department of Health said that the OPLAN RECOVERY had been constant and continuous in order to ensure that their data was up-to-date and accurate.

With this, the Department of Health informed the public that another batch of time-based recoveries will be reported on August 16. In addition, the DOH announced that the time-based COVID-19 recoveries will be reported every Sunday after validation of its regional offices with the local government units.
