On September 13, the PH positive rate increased to 12.5%.

The Department of Health (DOH) said on Thursday that it had noticed a gradual drop in coronavirus cases over the past week.

The DOH informed media via Viber that as of September 13, 12.5 percent of persons had tested positive for the virus, up 0.5 percentage points from the previous week’s 12 percent.

As of September 14, the nation had an average of 2,201 cases daily.

“Nationally, we are observing a modest, sustained drop in cases,” the DOH stated. “Reported cases in the most recent week were 7% lower than the prior week, which recorded an average of 2,369 cases daily.”

The OCTA Research Group had already observed an increase in the positive rate in the two provinces of Pangasinan and Rizal.

The optimism rating for Rizal improved from 12 percent on September 3 to 17.4 percent as of September 10.

The optimism rate in Pangasinan rose from 6.9 percent on September 10 to 10.9 percent as of September 12.

To stop the pandemic, the World Health Organization encouraged nations on Wednesday to invest in immunizing every single member of the susceptible population, including senior folks, those with comorbid conditions, and healthcare personnel.

Additionally, it forewarned nations that failing to “seize the chance to terminate the epidemic” will result in new variations, more severe and critical cases, and fatalities.

As of September 12, about 72.8 million Filipinos had received their vaccinations. About 6.8 million of the total are senior persons.

More than 2.5 million people have received their second booster shot, while over 18.6 million have received their first booster dosage.
