The Department of Health reports a 52 percent decrease in Covid-19 cases.

MANILA, Philippines β€” According to a health official, the country’s average daily coronavirus cases from February 11-17 were 52 percent lower than the week before, effectively curbing the spread of the Omicron and other types.

“Atin na pong nalampasan ang hamon na buhat ng Omicron at kasalukuyan na po tayong nasa low-risk case classification,” Health Undersecretary Maria Rosario Vergeire said in an online press conference.

Vergeire said all regions in the country saw a drop of at least 1,000 daily average cases this week compared to the previous week, citing the most recent data.

With the exception of the Cordillera Administrative Region (CAR) and Region 11, she stated that all regions are now classified as low-risk cases.

“All regions have shown a negative two-week growth rate that we have witnessed throughout declining trends in new cases of Covid-19,” Vergeire stated.

Except for Region 11, which is at moderate risk for intensive care unit (ICU) bed utilization, the country’s health care utilization rate (HCUR), or the availability of hospital beds and other facilities, is currently at low risk.

According to Vergeire, the Omicron variety caused the quickest spread of Covid-19 in the country, but it was also brought under control in a record amount of time.

“Bagama’t lubhang dumami ang ating mga kaso, ito hindi po ito sinabayan ng pagtaas ng mga hospitalized cases at dahil yan ng masusing pag-monitor at pag-manage natin sa virus gayundin sa masigasig nating pagsunod sa minimum public health standards at mabilis

She stated that the country currently has an average of 2,876 cases each day.

She cautioned against being comfortable in the face of Covid-19 since the number of cases could still climb, especially now that election season has begun.

She urged national and local candidates running in the next elections to “offer creative avenues” for voters to engage in the fight against the pandemic.

“Nananawagan po kami sa mga nangangandidato na kung maaari po ay maiwasan natin ang malawakang marketing sorties na maaring magdulot ng overcrowding at maaring Covid-19 super spreader events,” Vergeire added.

According to the DOH Covid-19 bulletin, there are 2,232 new cases, 3,010 new recoveries, and 79 new deaths from Covid-19, bringing the total number of active patients to 65,796.
