No, it is real. Well, that’s the formal announcement of the Health Agency for the data today.
The Department of Health, in their late announcement today, reports, 12,751 new cases. With more recoveries today than cases, the active cases dip to a little more than 150,000.
Total tests done on September 6 (with 5 laboratories not reporting) was a little more than 57,000 for another high positive rate of 28.1%.
Total deaths reported today is at 174 placing the case fatality ratio for outcomes to 1.76%.
So it was a ‘technical glitch day’, hence accounting for the lower total cases today. Expect the ‘other unreported new cases’ to pour in within the week. The cases today are reported here as reported by the Department of Health in the data drop, and may not actually reflect the cases in the various levels (regions, provincial, LGU) because the the glitch in the DICT.
In spite of the glitch, it was still NCR, CALABARZON and Central Luzon that led the haul among regions, accounting for 55% of the day’s cases.
Cavite maintained its over-all provincial lead, while Davao del Sur came in second.
Among LGUs, NCR had 10 of its 17 LGUs in the top 20 list, while 6 LGUs came from CALABARZON. The city of Bacoor in Cavite was in fourth rank today.
