MANILA, Philippines (UPDATED) – The death toll from Super Typhoon Yolanda (Haiyan) continues to rise. As of Friday afternoon, November 22, the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (NDRRMC) said at least 5,209 were killed, 23,404 were injured, and 1,611 remained missing.

But the agency has been slow in updating its official tally. (READ: Death toll; hundreds not tallied)

Also on Friday, the government formed a task group “that will present a comprehensive rehabilitation program.” The group is headed by Energy Secretary Jericho Petilla, a former governor of typhoon-hit Leyte.

Malacañang has already turned over relief operations to local government units so that the national government can begin to focus on rehabilitation.

In the evening of November 11, President Benigno Aquino III declared a state of national calamity “to hasten the action of the government to rescue, provide help, and rehabilitate the provinces affected by Yolanda.”
