The Health Agency reports 5,676 new cases from the over 51,000 tests done last July 14 with 11% positivity rate. With less recoveries today (it’s a Friday so you will see less recoveries), the active cases are up at near 50K again. The total number of cases are a shy away from the next 1.5M mark, which we will surely surpass tomorrow.
There were 162 deaths reported as well. This brings the case fatality ratio for outcomes to 1.83% today.
The original triumvirate CALABARZON, NCR and Central Luzon are back in the lead, with NCR raking in close to 15% of the total new cases for the day.
Among provinces, Cebu province ranked first, followed by Laguna and Davao del Sur.
Davao City continued to lead on an LGU level. This is followed by Quezon City, Cebu City, City of Manila and Iloilo City in sequence. Eight of 17 LGUs in NCR landed in the top twenty cities with most cases.
In Mega Manila, Quezon City and Manila reported triple digits, while the rest saw a slight increase in cases per LGU.
