The Health Agency reports 5,484 new cases today for tests done last July 6, Monday, with 11.3% positivity rate. While this shows a continued slow down in cases, the deaths climbed quickly with 191 new death reported today. The case fatality ratio for outcomes stands at 1.82 percent.
Healthcare utilization is still higher on the national level compared to the NCR alone. This is in all categories – ICU beds, isolation beds, ward beds and ventilator use.
NCR is back in number one among regions today with more than 14% of the total new cases. And as erratic as the daily numbers go by region, Western Visayas and CALABARZON come in second and third.
Iloilo Province, Laguna and Davao del Sur remain the top three provinces in the country with most cases. And Davao City continues to be the LGU with most cases today.
As NCR gains ground to top the region with most cases, 8 of 17 LGUs are back in the top twenty cities with most cases. The shocker of the day is – LAS PIÑAS grabs the lead as the city in Mega Manila with most cases, overtaking Quezon City.
