The research stated, “Its reproduction number is 0.42, healthcare utilization is 19 percent, and testing positivity rate is only 2%.”
Meanwhile, the National Capital Region (NCR), as well as the provinces of Rizal, Cavite, Bulacan, Batangas, and Davao City, are considered low-risk areas.
With an ADAR of 6.73 per 100,000 inhabitants, NCR has a reproduction number of 0.52. It has a positivity rate of 6% and a healthcare usage rate of 35%.
