With 1,912 new cases and 40 new deaths reported by the DoH today, our 7-day average is now at 1,750 cases/day. And with the entry of the B. variant of SARS-CoV-2, the Rt will trend a bit higher considering the transmissibility of this new variant—if it is not contained immediately.

Three cities are among the top five haulers with Davao City taking back the lead with 136 cases and Quezon City coming in second with 107 new cases. The newcomer to the top five is Dagupan City with 57 new cases.
