The weekend effect giving a lower 7,181 new cases and 1,455 of them were from backlog. Only 2 labs late. Positivity down again to 14.2% from 40.3k tests. More tests coming along, estimated at 47.9k.

Recoveries 6.9k

Deaths 173 with 101 RDs

Active 82,411

Severe in primary hospitals: 3,049, down 75, Critical 1,319, up 3
(Severe number for Oct 12 should have been 3,124)

NCR ICU 65%, down 1%, national 67%, down 1%

Regional data:

NCR 1,257
4A 967
Cag 707
CAR 681
CL 635
WV 595
Zam 331

The NCR had about 600 less and a low 17.5% of all cases. Similarly for region 4A. Whereas Cagayan had over 200 more.
These top 3 regions with 40.8% of all cases, down about 8%.

CL was over 200 down, WV added more than 100.
The top 6 regions with a slightly smaller national share of 67.4%.

Elsewhere EV added over 100 more.


For the NCR and the rest of the country until Oct 31:

NCR moves down to the DOH's Alert Level 3. A reminder from a Rappler article back in August what these alert levels are about:


Risk class: a decision was made to treat the NCR as a whole even though the 17 LGUs have different covid statistics (see OCTA updates). Covid bed utilization only just below 70% Granular lockdowns: now down to 125 and that now only includes 24 villages/subdivisions in the whole of the NCR.

The following GMA online news articles explain what this means:

Restos now 30 and 50%, indoor, outdoor rather than 10 and 30.
Indoor diners must be fully vaccinated. But having the "Safety Seal" ups the indoor % to 40.

One interesting thing from this article is that gatherings in a household of members of different households still not allowed. News to me that was ever not allowed and I am sure it was not monitored if it was.

https://www.gmanetwork.com/news/news...31-2021/story/

Not entirely clear, but it seems cinemas are being treated like restaurants:

Yesterday another 7,835 cases, backlog at 645. Four labs late. Their likely lost contribution about 90 cases. Positivity 14.0% from 51.4k tests. Lowest since July 25. Coming along a lower 48.4k.

Recoveries 5.3k

Deaths 151, 89 RDs

Active 84,850

Severe 3,055, up 6 and Critical 1,273, up 46

NCR ICU 61%, down 4%, national 65%, down 2%

Regional data:

NCR 1,553
4A 1,150

CL 775
WV 501
Cag 493

IL 383

200s 1 region
100s 4

The NCR added about 300 more to have 19.8% of national cases.
4A added about 200 and the CAR had well over 200 more to make the top 3 regions have an increased 46.0% of all cases.

The top 6 had 69.1% of all cases, nearly 2% more.

Increases of 100 to 200 more cases were seen in the Ilocos, NM and Davao regions.

The vaccine Czar optimistic about vaccine supply but they have a big disparity to fix on vaccinations done. This was the regional picture 2 weeks ago on total vaccinations by region, the latest I can find:



The latest OCTA NCR update. They have their own criteria, borrowed from the US to assess covid risk and seem to agree with the DOH:


The NCR heading in the right direction but if it wasn't these figures would be concerning!

I thought this was interesting:

Last, a good discussion on Newsnight on the recent House of Commons report on the UK response:


For report link see Oct 13.

How does the Philippines stand in Asia? Most of its neighbours also reporting less cases:

Rapid decline in Indonesia.

For Oct 16 about 150 more national cases at 7,772, backlog of 729. One lab late. A lower positivity of 13.0% from 54.2k tests. Lowest since Aug 10, says ABS-CBN. Tests on the way 48.5k.

Recoveries a low 1.6k

Deaths 156, 81 RDs.
Every day a large number of RDs, which inflated past recovery figures and under reported current death numbers. On one DOH chart the dates of deaths are used but they are not counted at the time when experts should know how the health system is doing.

Active: 85,048

Severe 3,062, down 19 and Critical 1,276, down 67

NCR ICU 62%, down 2%. National ICU 64%, down 2%

Regional data:

NCR 1,429
Cag 934
4A 790
CL 738
Bic 646
CAR 587

300s 5 regions
200s 1
100s 4

The NCR with a few more cases, at 18.0% of all cases.
Cagayan in second place added nearly 200 more.
The top 3 regions at 40.6% of all cases, up slightly.

Bicol, in fifth position added more than 200.

The top 6 regions at 65.9%, up 2.5%.

CV added about 160 more.



Cagayan looks on a downward trend but recent numbers concerning.


Bicol also on a solid decline but now 2 successive days of high cases,

https://www.msn.com/en-ph/news/natio...5?ocid=BingHPC

Some NCR cities allowing kids outside. To the list there maybe you can add Manila. I saw some on the TV news last night allowed on the Dolomite beach. After so long cooped up the harm done by that surely greatly outweighs the covid risk?

A dissenting ex government health adviser on the downgrade to Alert level 3.

https://news.abs-cbn.com/news/10/16/...-alert-level-3

I think the main changes down to level 3 are modest and yes, cinemas are potential spreading areas but it seems you need vaccination proof, at least in San Juan and probably other cities.. About 50% capacity, so a bit more than some indoor dining. Again people need to go out and enjoy themselves and if the risk is small...

Weekly update later.

Weekly update

New cases in the country last week showed a 20% reduction over the previous week. But the % reduction from the previous week compared to the week before was 33%. So case number improvement is slowing. So this week there many more regions, provinces and cities showing just small improvements or even cases increasing at a faster rate. Whereas in last week's update nearly all areas were showing decreases.

Due to missing data from the week before last I won't give % changes (but will give figures in a week's time). Today I will just indicate the most obvious changes.

Regional:

Regions with a high rate of increase last week over the week before (in descending order):

Bicol (very high)
Zanboanga Pen
W Visayas
MIMAROPA
Caraga

Regions with a moderate % fall in new cases :

Cagayan
CAR
Ilocos

For NCR cities:

Las Pinas new cases high % increase.
Also in Navotas. And Pateros (but small numbers).

Manila, Pasig, S Juan, Pasay, Pasig moderate % increase

Large decline in new cases in Muntinlupa.
Moderate decline in Makati.
QC small decline.

Small changes in the provinces around the NCR except for Bataan and Rizal, which both had moderate % rises.

For cities:

Naga and Sorsogon in Bicol both had very large % increases.
In the Visayas Bacolod and IloIlo both with moderate % increases.

In Mindanao Zamboanga City had a large % increase.

Baguio had a moderate % fall.



Apart from rising cases and hospital admissions the UK showing increasing infection in the 35-55 yrs age group (green), likely mostly infected by the young(blue) who are back to school. So good that all schools in the Philippines won't return for a while. Similar to the UK the economy here is being prioritized. But in the UK nearly all restrictions were removed a few months ago. Here a good thing is that the main ones look like being kept.


Dr John and other experts very concerned that cases are still rising going into Winter in the UK despite a high vaccination rate.

While there a number of big differences between the covid situations in the UK and here we will be nowhere near 85% next year so it will not be over here in 2022.

I think the problem in the Philippines now is that they been squeezing the economy for so long that the pips are starting to squeak. It's okay the populace suffering but it's now getting to the stage that the privileged classes are starting to feel the pinch, so things are starting to change, be it a good idea or not. One telling result was Duque being left out of the latest decision over the quarantine changes.

NCR Mayors left out too. Election campaigning starts in earnest soon and the government want to claim a victory is coming, despite the covid numbers, for its preferred candidates.
