It is still the highest Tuesday on record.
With 13,827 new cases released by the Health Agency today, the number of active cases are still over 145,000. And we are only a little more than 10,000 cases shy of hitting the 2 million mark.
On August 29, close to 50,000 tests were done with over one in four testing positive.
New deaths today were 118. This puts the case fatality ratio for outcomes at 1.82%.
The low Tuesday is a mirror of the low testing output on a Sunday. The NCR, CALABARZON, and Central Luzon (NCR plus) continue to contribute quadruple digits with close to 60% of the cases in the country.
Cavite continued to lead on a provincial level. The other provinces in region IVA included in the top ten are Laguna, Rizal and Batangas.
Eleven of 17 LGUs in NCR are in the top 20 list, but it is Muntinlupa City that continued to climb the charts, landing in fifth rank among cities with most cases in the country today. Six cities from CALABARZON are in the top 20 as well – 4 from Cavite, 1 in Laguna and 1 in Rizal.
