MANILA, Philippines — Four provinces adjacent to Metro Manila are now at low risk for COVID-19, a fellow of independent analytics group OCTA Research said Wednesday.

Guido David said that Cavite, Laguna, Rizal and Quezon are now under low risk, while Batangas is the lone province in the Calabarzon region still at moderate risk for COVID-19.


“Positivity rates drop below 10% in Calabarzon. [National Capital Region], Cavite, Laguna, Quezon, Rizal now at low risk. Batangas is expected to improve to low risk within a few days,” David posted on Twitter.

OCTA Research has earlier reported that Metro Manila is likewise at low risk.


The following are the positivity rates of the provinces in the Calabarzon region:

Batangas – 10 percent

Cavite – 9 percent

Laguna – 8 percent


Quezon – 4 percent

Rizal – 8 percent

The growth rates of Calabarzon provinces range from -50 percent to -59 percent.

Their average daily attack rates (ADARs) are at moderate risk except Quezon which is at very low risk.

ADAR is the number of infected individuals per 100,000 population.

All their reproduction numbers are, meanwhile, below one which is very low, said OCTA Research.

In terms of healthcare utilization rate, Batangas is at low risk while the rest are at very low risk.
