MANILA, Philippines — Davao del Sur had the most number of new COVID-19 cases among all provinces on Monday, independent analytics group OCTA Research said Tuesday, citing data from the Department of Health (DOH).


According to data shared by OCTA Research fellow Guido David, Davao del Sur recorded 968 new COVID-19 cases on Monday.

The province was followed by Cebu with 793 additional infections, Cavite with 594, Benguet with 434,  Rizal 392,  Bulacan with 375, Iloilo with 358, Laguna with 344 and Misamis Oriental with 325 new cases.


The DOH reported a total of 14,546 additional COVID-19 cases on Monday, bringing the active cases nationwide to 190,818.

Metro Manila, which was earlier downgraded to moderate risk from the previous high risk status, had a share of 4,040 new cases from this figure, based on the DOH tracker.

The capital region’s new COVID-19 cases on Monday more than doubled Sunday’s recorded cases of 2,008.

David said that the increase was most likely due to a backlog in reporting.

The DOH earlier said that while new COVID-19 cases are decreasing in Metro Manila, an increase in coronavirus infections is happening in parts of Visayas in Mindanao, especially in Western and Central Visayas and the Davao region.
