MANILA, Philippines — The country’s seven-day average of  new COVID-19 cases dropped by 29 percent, the lowest since the August 6 to 12 period, OCTA Research Team fellow Dr. Guido David said on Monday.

David said that even if 12,159 new cases were recorded on Sunday, the most since October 3, there is “no cause for concern.”

“The downward trend continued as the 7-day average decreased to 10,452, the lowest since Aug 6 to 12 during the first week of ECQ (enhanced community quarantine,” David said in a social media post.

David also noted that the country’s reproduction number was at 0.70

Meanwhile, the growth rate is at -29 percent.

Some areas in Northern Luzon and Western Mindanao, however, are still experiencing a surge of the more transmissible  COVID-19 Delta variant, David said.
