The number of new coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases in Metro Manila continued to decrease as it averaged 829 cases per day during the June 9-15 period, OCTA Research said in its report on Wednesday, June 16.

OCTA pointed out that Metro Manila’s seven-day average is down 13 percent from the previous week.

“This corresponds to an ADAR (average daily attack rate) of six per 100,000, which classifies it (Metro Manila) as moderate risk,” it said.

The reproduction number in Metro Manila over the same period was 0.69

“The NCR (National Capital Region) had a positivity rate of 8 percent, with a 35 percent hospital bed occupancy, 46 percent ICU (intensive care unit) bed occupancy, and 33 percent mechanical ventilator occupancy, all are within safe levels,” OCTA said.

It noted that all local government units in Metro Manila are now classified as “moderate risk” to COVID-19 infections.

Navotas registered the lowest ADAR at 3.85 percent, while Pateros had the lowest average daily new cases with six cases during the same period.
