MANILA – All 16 cities and the lone town in the National Capital Region (NCR) are now under moderate risk classification for coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) following the downtrend in reported cases, the OCTA Research Group said Thursday.
In its latest monitoring report, the group noted that the reproduction number in the NCR has decreased to 0.60 as the seven-day average in new cases dropped to 1,847 — 30 percent lower than the previous week’s average.
“The positivity rate in the NCR was 11 percent while the healthcare utilization rate was 49 percent,” it said.
Among the cities, San Juan still has a critical average daily attack rate (ADAR) of 28.68.
