The Health Agency announced only 850 cases today with positive rate at 10.5% (secondary to the very low testing at 9710 yesterday). As the long holiday draws to a close today, there definitely will be very few cases due to the low testing the next few days. There were 21 added deaths.
NCR continued to dominate the numbers, accounting for 354 of the cases (42%) of the day. More than 1/4 of the cases in the NCR (26%) belonged to Quezon City alone with 93. The other NCR LGUs with double digits were: Manila 35, Valenzuela 29, Caloocan and Pasig 27 each, Makati and Taguig 25 each, Parañaque 22, Mandaluyong 18 and Las Piñas 16.
Only two princes had more than 30 but less than 50 cases: Cavite 45 and Laguna 37.
I understand that everyone is in a festive move, and the economy attempts to bounce back. It is also important to remember that the virus is in a festive mode as well with all the gatherings. Let’s not forget to practice minimum health standards while enjoying the holiday season.
