Run PHP script as daemon and auto scale

Have a PHP program to process events stored in database,
event table
id      description
1      event 1
2       event 2
3      event 3
...

process_event.php
<?php
do loop {
get an event from table
process the event
remove the event from table
}
?>

Want to run PHP program as daemon.
process_event.sh
#!/bin/bash
nice php process_event.php
 
Here it only runs a single worker.
Want to auto scale additional workers when needed.
For example, when table has 10 events, run 1 worker,
when table has 20 events, run 2 workers,
and automatically scale to run more or less workers according to number of events.
