At first you’d get surprised at the sudden leap in numbers as the Health Agency reports 2,646 new cases today. The increase in numbers today most likely included backlogs form the past week and days.
For the first time, the Philippines records a positivity rate less than 5% (4.3%) with 35,772 tests done on November 8, 2021.
With more recoveries than cases, the active cases now dip below 30,000. However, one-third of the remaining active cases are moderate to critical as the mild and asymptomatic are at 67.8%. That means almost 10,000 of the active cases are moderate to critical.
Additional 99 deaths were recorded today.
