The granular data for yesterday came out very late. They released it one hour before the daily 4PM data drop announcement. The Health Agency reported a little less than 5,500 new cases today (as expected because Wednesday will always see a bit higher cases than the low Tuesdays). Today’s numbers are based on close to 40,000 tests run last June 7 with 12.6% positivity rate. The active cases are slightly down to 4.2%, but tomorrow will provide us with a clearer picture of our numbers in the pandemic.
With 126 new deaths reported today, the case fatality ratio for outcomes is steady at 1.80%.
The NCR is back on the leader board among regions with most cases (I have doubts it will ever have numbers below 500), with close to 900 new cases. In second is CALABARZON. Western Visayas is the region to watch out for as it makes a dash for the third spot in the regional tally.
On a provincial level, Cavite leads the pack, followed by Iloilo and Laguna.
And on a city/municipality level, Quezon City takes back the lead among all cities. There are 10 of 17 cities from NCR that are among the top twenty cities with most cases for the day. Iloilo City, Davao City and Bacolod City are the three cities outside of NCR in the top 5 cities with most cases.
