The Health Agency announced 2275 new cases with 13.2% positivity and 35 added deaths, as the epicenter, Mega Manila now owned more than 53% of the day’s cases with 1199.
While the rest of the country is mostly seeing lower cases, NCR continued to haul in the largest contribution to the daily cases as highest mobility and density in the region continued to be the major factor for the re-uptick in cases.
Quezon City led with 289 cases followed by Manila 177 and Makati 117. Eleven other LGUs reported double digits: Pasig 89, Caloocan 73, Mandaluyong 70, Taguig 67, Valenzuela 61, Parañaque 59, Pasay City 50, Las Piñas 40, Marikina 34, Muntinlupa 33 and San Juan 19.
Non-ICU occupancy in NCR is at 40% while ICU utilization is at 30% as of today (however, hospitalization, like death, are lagging data).
Three provinces reported triple digits: Cavite 130, Rizal 114 and Bulacan 101.
Two provinces had more than 50 but less than 100 cases: Davao del Sur 92 (with 46 from Davao City) and Laguna 51.
