The Covid-19 spreads in every country in the world. Philippines had increased the cases of COVID-19 since it started. The data gathered in the official website of the department of health COVID-19 tracker in the Philippines and the age of the patients and days of recoveries from January to April 2020 with 5454 cases and 243 recoveries. The treatment used in the data is Pearson r, a two-tailed t-test and it was measured in excel 2016. The result in COVID-19 patient’s age and Recovery rate has no significant correlation because the average of the significance level is greater than on the alpha level of 0.5 but it has moderate positive strength in correlation
