State news reported Friday that 3,621 have been counted dead so far, and 12,165 injured. The decomposing bodies have become a health hazard for survivors, many of whom are suffering from hunger, thirst, and lack of shelter. Groups of children are roaming the streets of Tacloban, one of the hardest-hit cities, and there remains no sign of aid trucks.
