Despite the low-risk status of the PH pandemic, the situation is “fragile.”
Even though the coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) situation in the nation has been classified as low risk, the Department of Health (DOH) warned on Saturday that the situation remained “fragile.”
However, just because a nation has a low-risk categorization based on criteria that allow it to handle its cases does not imply that the people should be lax in following health procedures.
‘Yes, it will show us that we are at low risk based on the two-week growth rate and the average daily attack rate (ADR), but if we look at the whole country, we will see that there are a number of regions where we may be at high risk,’ says the researcher. “But if we look at the whole country, we will see that there are a number of regions where we may be at high risk,” says the researcher.
As the head of the research organization OCTA, she agreed that the nation must maintain its vigilance in order to further reduce the country’s infection rate, which was 53,665 active cases as of July 3.
Covid instances show that PH is at a “low risk,” with a growth rate of -9 percent after two weeks.
Although the decrease in infections is somewhat slowing down even in the National Capital Area (NCR), Vergeire noted that cases from outside the region may have an impact on the region since its borders are “extremely porous.”
Cases in the Visayas and Regions 11, 12, Caraga and Bangsamoro in Mindanao are now being carefully monitored, as are those in the Philippines.
Also under observation by the Department of Health (DOH) are the situations in certain areas of Luzon, especially Lucena City in Calabarzon, the Ilocos Region, Cagayan Valley, and the Cordillera Administrative Region, where there is a high rate of healthcare use.
On Thursday, Alethea de Guzman, OIC-Director of the DOH Epidemiology Bureau, said that the country’s risk categorization has been downgraded to low after registering a negative 9 percent growth rate in terms of reported cases and a 5.42 ADAR from June 13 to June 26.
From March 30 to June 12, the nation’s growth rate was 15 percent, and its ADAR was 5.96 percent. However, according to OCTA Research, an ADAR should be less than 1 percent in order to be deemed a low-risk country.
