The Health Agency announces 592 new cases, 76 deaths and a 3.2% positivity rate today. The positivity rate should be taken with a grain of salt as the country moves into targeted testing. Which means that only A1, A2, and A3 are prioritized and that contact tracing is not routinely performed anymore. This is not only seen in the Philippines but in almost all our Asian neighbors as well.
NCR accounted for 25.7% of the total cases (152) in the country today.
The City of Manila led todays cases in the NCR with 25 cases followed by Quezon City with 23. All other LGUs had less than 20 cases, with 11 LGUs announcing only single digit. The LGUs with single digit were: Makati 7, Parañaque 9, Las Piñas 5, Valenzuela 6, Mandaluyong 5, Muntinlupa 2, Marikina 6, Malabon 1, Navotas 4, San Juan 2, and Pateros 1.
