Not bad for a Thursday haul as the Health Agency reports 3,694 cases today. With almost equal numbers recovering, the active cases drop to less than 50,000.
There were 50,755 tests done last October 26 with 8.6% positivity. There is likely a backlog in today’s data and will be reflected this week.
A total of 227 new deaths are reported today.
Health care utilization and ICU rate remains moderate in both the NCR and the national level.
With the announcement of adjustments of backlog cases, additional 3,439 new cases from September 29 to October 18 and added only to COVIDKAYA on October 27, puts the total of cases to 7,133 for October 28, 2021
Officially, the Philippines reported 7,133 newly announced cases on October 28. Most of the cases added are considered recovered while only 22 remained active. Two deaths were reported from this ‘second’ report.
The post will not be complete if the granular data for the 7,133 cases are not uploaded on the blog.
For completeness, NCR continued to lead with 1,303 or 18.2% of the cumulative total cases for yesterday and the late report today. CALABARZON was in second, while CAR came in third.
On a provincial level, Benguet took the lead, but several provinces in the CALABARZON region were in the top ten, including Laguna, Rizal, Batangas and Cavite.
Quezon City continued to be the LGU to beat on a city/municipality level, but was the only LGU in the NCR in the top 5. The other LGUs in the top five were: Zamboanga City, Baguio City, Davao City and Antipolo City (2nd to fifth spot in that order).
