The week begins with 1,547 new cases based on reports last November 13 or close to just 40,000 tests and a positivity rate of 4.1%. The active cases drop to 27,000 but so do the mild and asymptomatic, which now comprise only 2/3 of the total active cases. That means that 1/3 of all the active cases are moderate to critical. That’s still close to 9,000 patients.
Another 128 new deaths are added today.
NCR continued to lead among all regions with more than 20% of the total share for today with 317 cases. It had more cases than the combined cases of Cagayan Valley and CALABARZON. Fewer regions are now reporting triple digits.
Quezon City has continued to lead among LGUs in new cases reported. Today, it reported 91 cases or almost 30% of the total cases in Mega Manila. Without Quezon City’s numbers, the number of cases in the NCR would have been significantly lower. This LGU had higher cases than any of the provinces in the top 10 list for the day.
The good news is that 9 of 17 LGUs in NCR were in the top 20 LGUs with most cases for the day. The fewest cases for today is 13. Meaning if your LGU recorded 13 cases, it would be in the list.
