MANILA, Philippines — Davao City continues to top the list of local government units in the country with the most cases of the coronavirus logged per day, the OCTA Research Group said Sunday.
This comes amid mounting concern over local cases of the Delta variant of COVID-19, 16 of which were documented over the past week.
In its latest monitoring report on COVID-19, the research group said that the city averaged 225 daily COVID-19 cases from July 11 to July 17 after posting norms of 235 cases per day in the weeks prior. The city also had 12.38 new daily cases per 100,000 population.
“We should not wait for [the variant] to enter…It will spread fast and will be hard to prevent once it starts in our region,” OCTA Research fellow Guido David said in Filipino in an interview aired over dzMM’s “Teleradyo.”
