The Philippines is seeing a drop of 52% from the peak cases from the highest daily average reported on April 15, 2021 during the second surge.
To date, we now have 1.408M infections and close to 25,000 coronavirus-related deaths reported as the Health Agency announces 4,479 new cases from reports last June 27, on a little more than 32,000 tests with a positivity of 10.7%. But then again, there’s the factor of a Tuesday report where the new cases reported are the lowest during the whole week. You can see that in the number of tests done and the quantity of laboratories that failed to submit a report on a Sunday – 14 laboratories (accounting for 5.4% of all samples tested or 6.5% of positive individuals for that day).
With 101 new deaths today, the case fatality ratio for outcomes remains steady at 1.81%.
Davao led -by region, province (Davao del Sur) and city (Davao City) on a day that had fewer cases to report. For the first time, NCR moved down to fourth in rank.
Quezon City still led in the NCR with triple digit cases, while 6 LGUs in NCR had single digit cases. Nevertheless, 7 of 17 LGUs in NCR were among the top twenty cities with most cases for the day in the country.
While the province Davao del Sur was on top, Cavite and Negros Occidental were in second and third for the day.
Davao City had more cases than the cities of Bacolod, Quezon City and Iloilo City combined.
