New COVID-19 cases in the National Capital Region (NCR), as well as in the provinces of Batangas, Cavite Laguna and Rizal, are on a downward trend, OCTA Research said Friday.
In a tweet, OCTA fellow Dr. Guido David said based on indicators, Rizal has improved to "moderate risk" classification while NCR, Batangas, Cavite, Laguna and Quezon are still at high risk.
Citing government data, Rizal has the lowest reproduction rate at 0.69 among provinces in the Calabarzon region as of January 27, 2022, with Quezon having the highest at 1.35.
NCR's reproduction rate, meanwhile, fell further from 0.63 on January 26 to 0.52 on January 27.
Reproduction rate refers to the number of people infected by one case. A reproduction number that is below 1 indicates that the transmission of the virus is slowing down.
As far as average daily attack rate (ADAR) is concerned, Cavite has the highest in Calabarzon at 32.66 followed by Laguna with 31.96. Quezon has the lowest with 11.13.
NCR's ADAR, meanwhile, was at 31.13.
For positivity rate, both Quezon and Laguna posted 45% -- the highest in Calarzon. NCR's positivit rate is 22%.
For healthcare utilization rate (HCUR), Quezon has the highest in Calabarzon with 52% with Rizal having the lowest at 41%. NCR's HCUR is 43%. —KBK, GMA News
