East Asia in review and the data for 10.09.2022

The Health Agency announces 2097 new cases with 34 added deaths and 15.6% positivity today. Of these, 790 cases were from NCR.

Quezon City continued to lead nationally with 194 cases with 13 LGUs in NCR announcing double digit figures. Manila 86, Makati 76, Pasig 55, Paranaque 55, Caloocan 49, Las Pines 47, Taguig 46, Valenzuela 37, Mandaluyong 34, Muntinlupa 32, Marikina 26, Pasay City 23, San Juan 10.

Provinces with triple digits were: Cavite 181 and Rizal 115. Those with more than 50 but less than 100 cases were: Laguna 62, Batangas 50, Bulacan 85, Iloilo 61, and Davao del Sur 88 (with 25 from Davao City).

Notably, some provinces in Mindanao are seeing an uptick in reports including: South Cotabato 31, Sultan Kudarat and General Santos 11 each, Sarangani 27 and Agusan del Sur 17.


Globally, Europe now comprises more than 50% of the world’s daily cases. In East Asia, Taiwan continued to see rising cases as the Rt remained above 1. Japan sees a dramatic drop in cases, not because there are less COVID cases see, but because in the way the reporting is done. The doctors are not mandated to fill up each and every report for all cases of COVID-19 any longer in the country. With the BA.5 and BA.4 and its sub variants dominating the globe in time for the winter season, some of the countries are notably seeing changing landscapes with many under testing, and simply living with the virus.

The Philippines averaged 2014 daily cases with a Rt of 1.16 (+/- 0.05), meaning that we are at a plateau and should expect to see a tad higher cases this week. Singapore’s numbers are up at more than 5250 daily cases and a Rt of 1.25.
