The Health Agency cleaned up the new cases with yesterday’s report (see yesterday’s blog regarding the backlogs).
And announces 291 new cases (still with some lag, which will eventually get corrected in the future) based on 35,527 tests with a positivity of 0.9%. The 7-day average is now at at less than 200 cases/day. And with more recoveries than cases, the active cases touch the four-digit mark at 9,924. More than 56% of them are moderate to severe (and are backlogs which need to be accounted for).
There are 106 additional deaths today.
The NCR had 67 cases today. And while Las Piñas led among all LGUs with 13 cases in Mega Manila, 12 of these cases were backlogs – 9 in October, 2 in September and 1 last April 2021. Essentially, Las Piñas had only ONE case yesterday. However, it was not the same story for Iloilo, where the municipality of Pototan recorded the most cases on a city/municipality level all over the country.
So while Las Piñas was the only LGU in NCR that officially recorded double digits, in reality, it had only one ‘fresh’ case. This means that all LGUs in NCR had less than 10 cases for today.
