The last day of August 2022 had the Health Agency reporting 1558 new cases with 41 added deaths and a slight bump up in the positivity rate to 11.8%. The lower cases today is due to the fact that Monday, August 29 was a holiday and the long weekends tend to show lower cases because of either non-testing or that some testing facilities are not operational on these days.
The NCR owned 580 (37.2%) of the cases today.
Only Quezon City continued to report triple digits for the day with 153 cases. Thirteen other LGUs in NCR saw double digits: Manila 67, Makati 50, Parañaque 43, Pasig 42, Mandaluyong 36, Las Piñas 34, Marikina 27, Taguig 26, Caloocan 25, Pasay City 24, Muntinlupa 20, Valenzuela 14, and San Juan 10.
Only 4 provinces had more than 50 but less than 100 cases in the country as even the provinces and HUCs outside of NCR were seeing declining cases today. These were: Davao del Sur 65 (with Davao City accounting for 60), Cavite 64, Laguna 59 and Iloilo 57.
