The three provinces have negative COVID-19 growth rates ranging from -10 percent to -63 percent.
Their average daily attack rates (Adar) range from 0.44 to 0.72. Adar is the number of new cases per 100,000 individuals.
Meanwhile, their reproduction numbers are all below one — the ideal figure, according to health experts — which indicates lesser COVID-19 transmission.
The provinces’ healthcare utilization rates are likewise at very low risk at 15 percent to 25 percent.
The other two provinces in Davao Region–Davao de Oro and Davao del Norte– are both at low risk for COVID-19.
