NCR owned 50% of 246 cases for 05.21.2022

Yes we’re seeing increasing cases. As noted in the increase in reproduction number (Rt) over the past days, where the Rt is >1.0 (+/- 0.05), the 7-day positivity rate remains at 1.1%. But testing has remained relatively low in the country, with those testing positive with rapid antigen, not testing anymore with RT-PCR.

The Health Agency announces 246 new cases today with 0 added deaths. The NCR accounted for half of today’s numbers. Five LGUs in NCR led the haul with double digits. They were: Quezon City 23, City of Manila 22, Parañaque 14, Taguig 12, and Pasay City 10. Three LGUs in NCR had zero covid. These were: Marikina, Navotas and Pateros.

Outside of NCR, the province of Cavite contributed 15 cases, Isabela 11, South Cotabato and Albay 6 apiece.

With the DoH reporting the presence of BA.2.12.1 as community transmission (which is 25% higher in transmissibility) and BA.4 from an OFW from the Middle East who arrived in the country last May 4, 2022, we remind the public to maintain minimum public health standards and plan your trips.

More importantly, for those that should get boosters already, please avail of them sooner than later. You will regret forgoing this for another time.
