The week in review and the data for 10.17.2022

The Health Agency notes that for the week of October 10-16, 2022, the total new cases were 7% higher at 15,314 total cases for this week when compared to the week October 3-9, 2022. There were 251 deaths added, with 33 of the deaths being recent (October 3-16). While the recent deaths was low, this is difficult to correlate with the COVID19 cases considering that deaths are always late reports and the two-week window of the DoH by calling it ‘fresh’ reports should not be applied.

Healthcare utilization remained low with 26.8% for non-ICU bed utilization (lower than the previous 27.2%) and ICU bed utilization at 25% (higher than the previous 24.3%). Positivity rate remains high at around 15% at the end of the week.

The DoH announces 1938 new cases with 37 added deaths and a reset of the positivity rate to 13.4% today. NCR accounted for 675 or 34.5% of the cases for the day.

Quezon City continued to lead with 170 cases today, both nationally and in NCR. Thirteen LGUs reported double digits: Manila 85, Makati 66, Pasig 52, Parañaque 44, Taguig and Mandaluyong 43, Las Piñas 34, Caloocan 30, Muntinlupa 23, Pasay City 21, Marikina 18, Valenzuela 17 and San Juan 10.

Provinces with triple digits were: Cavite 129 and Davao del Sur 103. Those with more than 50 but less than 100 cases were: Laguna 67, Rizal 74, Bulacan 84, Tarlac 53, Iloilo 77, Cebu 55 and South Cotabato 58.
