A report by radio dzBB’s Rodil Vega said the new figure was announced late afternoon.
President Benigno Aquino III on Sunday went to at least two areas in Eastern Visayas that suffered heavy damage from Yolanda.
These included Guiuan in Eastern Samar and Tacloban City in Leyte.
Meanwhile, Presidential Communications Development and Strategic Planning Office head Ramon Carandang noted a rationing of sorts of fuel in Tacloban City.
“In Tacloban, bring your vehicle to a gas station, you can buy a full tank, but if you are filling up a container, you can only buy P500,” he said. — BM, GMA News
