Covid-19 is a very low risk for NCR in time for Christmas, according to OCTA.

According to the OCTA Research Group, the National Capital Region (NCR) is at a very low risk for coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19), with an average of only 79 new cases per day from December 14 to December 20.

In its most recent report, the group stated, “The incidence of ADAR (average daily attack rate) was 0.55 per day per 100,000 individuals, while the reproduction number was 0.48.”

The NCR’s test positivity rate was 0.6 percent, and it had an average of 18,127 RT-PCR tests over the previous seven days, according to the report.

Pateros, Muntinlupa, Navotas, Caloocan, Marikina, Pasay, Taguig, Quezon City, Mandaluyong, Pasig, Malabon, Paraaque, Valenzuela, Manila, and Makati are among the 15 local government units (LGUs) in the NCR that had an extremely low Covid-19 rating.

Only Pateros, out of the 15 LGUs, had no new cases of Covid-19. The remaining LGUs reported one to fifteen new illnesses. Their ADARs are all less than one.

Meanwhile, with ADARs of 1.10 and 1.19, two LGUs, Las Pinas and San Juan, were rated as low risk for Covid-19. San Juan has a 33 percent healthcare use rate, while Las Pias has only 9%.

“The metrics used are based on covidactnow.org and are not the same as those used by the IATF [Interagency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases] and the DOH [Department of Health],” according to OCTA.
