It was followed by Cavite with 16 new cases, Palawan with 13 cases, and Zamboanga del Sur and South Cotabato with 12 cases.

The entire country reported 370 new COVID-19 cases on Wednesday, bringing the active cases of the disease to 12,510 amid the threat of the Omicron variant that is spreading overseas but is yet to be detected in the Philippines.

The Department of Health (DOH) earlier said that there is currently no clustering of COVID-19 cases in any part of the country that could indicate the presence of the said variant.

With the downward trend of coronavirus cases, the DOH has already declared that the Philippines is now at minimal risk for COVID-19.
