There were fewer cases today than yesterday as backlogs were included in the tally.
Today, the Health Agency reports 1,974 new cases based on more than 43.000 tests done last November 9 with a 4.9% positivity rate. This is the second straight day with positivity rates < 5%.
With more recoveries, the active cases are now down to a little more than 28,000. Around 9,000 plus active cases are anywhere from moderate to critical.
A total of 142 new deaths were announced today.
The NCR continued to lead with 445 new cases today and a share of 22.5% of the total cases in the country. As the cases in other regions continue to decline, more than 1 in 4-5 cases in the country are from Mega Manila. While 8 regions reported triple digits, they were less than 200 cases apiece.
Negros Oriental was the only province that reported triple digits.
On an LGU level, 11 of 17 LGUs from NCR were among the top 20, with the small city of Muntinlupa jumping to fourth spot in the country. Fewest number of cases for the day was 15. Which meant that if your LGU had 15 cases, it would be part of the top 20 list.
