The Philippine education department reported that at least 311 teachers and 268 students have been infected with the coronavirus.

In an announcement on social media, Education Undersecretary Alain Pascua said that of the total cases, 318 remain active while 22 have died. It was unclear how many of the deaths were teaching staff or students.

The department has postponed the resumption of classes amid fears of the spread of COVID-19, which has infected almost 190,000 and close to 3,000 deaths.
