Past 2.5M cases and the very late data for 09.27.2021

I was a nail biter to the very end. The 4PM daily report came in at 930PM. Drum roll please…

The Health Agency reports 18,449 new cases today and with more than 21,000 that recovered, the total active cases are now a little above 158,000. But that was enough to push the country’s total past the 2.5M mark.

The more than 68,000 tests done on September 25, the positivity rate is at 23.5% and expected to bump up a bit with a Sunday report for Tuesday.

There were 93 deaths reported today. This lowers the case fatality ratio for outcomes to 1.60 percent.

With the numerous glitches occurring with the COVIDKaya of the Department of Health, they are trying to address the several issues where the negatives were counted as positive cases, as well as the death cases. With the 102 additional deaths reported this morning, the deaths recorded on 09.27.2021 are actually 202. But this is again an undercount considering that the number of deaths reported for the last three days were ZERO (or not applicable).

The very very late granular data just came in this afternoon.

The NCR continued to lead, however, it accounted for only 16.7% of the total cases. The other regions with four digits were: CALABARZON, Ilocos Region, Central Luzon, Western Visayas, Cagayan Valley, and Davao Region.

On a provincial level Negros Occidental and Davao del Sur topped the provinces.

Ten of 17 LGUs in NCR were among the top 20 cities/municipalities with most cases. Other major cities in the top 20 were: Davao City (2nd), Bacolod (5th), Baguio City (8th) and San Fernando, La Union (10th).
