The Health Agency announces 636 cases with a reboot of the positive rate to a low of 7.3% (because it is a Monday). There were, however, 26 added deaths. Only 3860 individuals had PCR tests done on Christmas Day, which may mean that we should be seeing between 250-350 cases on the low Tuesday tomorrow.
NCR continued to lead the pack with 42% of the cases for the day.
Quezon City reported 50 cases followed by Makati with 32. The other LGUs with double digits and less than 30 cases in Mega Manila were: Taguig 24, Pasig 23, Manila 20, Las Piñas 18, Parañaque 17, Muntinlupa 15, Mandaluyong 14, Pasay City and Valenzuela 11 each, and Caloocan 10.
