MANILA, Philippines — Quezon City and Metro Manila led the list of cities and regions, respectively, with the most number of new COVID-19 cases recorded on Saturday, independent  pandemic monitor OCTA Research said on Sunday.

The Department of Health’s COVID-19 tracker on Saturday showed 777 new COVID-19 cases, bringing the total number of active cases to 6,425.


OCTA  Research fellow Guido David, in a social media post, said that Quezon City accounted for 74 of the 353 new cases recorded in Metro Manila. 

The City of Manila had the second most number of new COVID-19 cases in Metro Manila with 52, followed by Makati City (39) and Pasig City (31).


Outside the capital region, Cavite logged the most number of new infections with 62, followed by Iloilo (41), Cebu (40) and Batangas (37).

Earlier, the DOH placed Pasig City, Quezon City, San Juan City, Marikina City and the municipality of Pateros under moderate risk for COVID-19.

Moderate risk means a city had a positive two-week growth rate (TWGR) and average daily attack rate (ADAR) of at least 6 average cases per day for every 100,000 individuals.
