QC has been reduced to 14 new Covid-19 cases each day, according to OCTA.
MANILA, Philippines — According to the most recent statistics given by the OCTA Research Group, the Quezon City government is currently reporting an average of 14 new coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) cases every day.
The local government said on its Facebook page on Wednesday that the city’s positive rate has dropped to 1.7 percent from 1.8 percent last week, thanks to a decrease in the average number of new cases each day.
Mayor Joy Belmonte of Quebec praised the development, which she credited to citizens’ continued adherence to health and safety regulations that are still in place today.
The success in the fight against Covid-19, according to Belmonte, is also due to the local government’s efforts to slow the disease’s spread.
“We are encouraged by this positive development, as it demonstrates the effectiveness of our unrelenting battle against Covid-19. He explained that “this is not only the success of our local government but also of its residents who tirelessly and patiently joined in the action to combat the spread of the virus,” adding, “This is not only the success of our local government but also of its residents who tirelessly and patiently joined in the action to combat the spread of the virus.”
In the meantime, the city’s Reproduction Number (R0) was 0.46. An RO reflects the severity of an infectious disease or how contagious it is.
A lower RO means a confirmed Covid-19 case has a lesser risk of infecting or causing a new infection, according to the World Health Organization (WHO).
The city government reported a total of 129 active Covid-19 cases as of Tuesday.
The overall number of people who have recovered from the disease in the city is now 259,799, or 99.30 percent.
The Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases (IATF-EID) has approved the recommendation to place Metro Manila under the lowest Alert Level 1 status from April 16 to 30. Acting presidential spokesperson and Presidential Communications Operations Office (PCOO) Secretary Martin Andanar said in a statement on Wednesday.
This is because the number of Covid-19 cases in the country is still low.
From April 16 to 30, almost half of the Philippines’ total cities and municipalities will be on Alert Level 1 as well.
