The number of unemployed Filipinos increased in June as those looking for jobs also went up. But the unemployment rate was steady at six percent, according to data from the Philippine Statistics Authority (PSA).

This, as fuel prices went down anew with diesel going down by P2.20 per liter, and gasoline by P2.10 per liter.

Meanwhile, all is set for the state funeral that will be accorded former president Fidel V. Ramos on Tuesday, Aug. 9, 2022, at the Libingan ng mga Bayani.

The Covid-19 positivity rate in 19 provinces were listed as “very high”, even as an expert assured the public that there’s no need to panic with every Omicron sub-variant that is being discovered.

These are among the top stories this Monday afternoon, Aug. 8, 2022.
