But it is "already eight to nine in specific sites (nationwide) mainly associated with officially-reported HIV prevalence," according to Teresita Marie Bagasao, country coordinator of the United Nations Program on HIV-AIDS (UNAIDS).

At the national level, "only those who are aware of the situation have expressed grave concern over the sharp increase in reported new HIV infections."
