After the Tuesday and Wednesday reprieve where we enjoyed lower daily cases, the Health Agency reports 5,221 new cases today based on over 48K tests done last July 13 with a 10.2% positivity rate. The active cases exceeds 45,000 today, as more new cases than recoveries are announced.
With 82 new deaths, the case fatality ratio for outcomes is steady at 1.82%.
Western Visayas and NCR take the lead once more, as the cases in Davao Region see a significant decline. Except for MIMAROPA and BARMM, all the other regions continue to report triple digits.
Iloilo province, Laguna and Negros Occidental are the provinces with most new cases.
While Davao City remains the LGU to beat, its declining cases will most likely have Quezon City back in saddle as the city to beat in the country. All major cities in the country are among the top five LGUs with most cases. In third to fifth are: Cebu City, Bacolod City and Iloilo City.
Quezon City remains the city with most new cases in NCR and is the only one with triple digits for the day. Six of 17 LGUs in Mega Manila are among the top 20 cities with most cases in the country.
