The Health Agency announces 1672 new cases (one of the lowest in the past weeks) but the number of deaths continued to be high with 53 announced today. Positivity rate is stable at 11.6%. NCR owned 563 of the cases.
Of course, the low data today is a reflection of the pattern seen on Tuesdays (for tests done on Sunday). Because Monday, August 29 was a holiday, we most likely should see the same trend tomorrow.
Quezon City was the lone LGU that reported triple digits in the country with 108 cases. In the NCR, twelve other LGUs posted double digits: Manila 88, Makati 65, Parañaque 59, Pasig 48, Pasay City 36, Taguig 35, Mandaluyong 24, Muntinlupa 23, Las Piñas 20, Caloocan 16, Marikina 14 and San Juan 11.
Provinces that reported more than 50 but less than 100 cases were: Cavite 91, Bulacan 90, Davao del Sur 84 (Davao City owned 82 of the cases), Rizal 76 and Pampanga 51.
