The COVIDKaya remains challenging as noted in the very very late upload of the data drop for yesterday, October 7, 2021.
I have updated the previous post with the granular data so that the readers can access it.
Today, the Health Agency reports 500 more cases than yesterday and announced 10,670 new cases. With 7,691 recoveries, the active cases are up at more than 118,000.
Total tests done on October 6 was 58,583, with a positivity rate of 16.9% (a new low).
Total deaths reported today was at 191.
NCR continues to lead, albeit flat, accounting for 17.1% of the total cases today. Aside from CALABARZON that came in third, the other regions with quadruple digits were all from Northern Luzon – Cordillera Administrative Regions, Ilocos Region and Cagayan Valley. Northern Luzon accounted for one-third of the total cases in the country.
This is reflected in the fact that on a provincial level, 6 of the top ten provinces were all from the North: Benguet, Isabela, La Union, Pangasinan, Cagayan and Ifugao.
On a LGU level, 11 of 17 LGUs in NCR were among the top twenty cities/municipalities with most cases. However, five LGUs outside NCR were among the top ten, with Baguio City in second and Davao City in third. The others were: San Fernando (La Union), Zamboanga City, and La Trinidad (Benguet).
