Experts from the OCTA Research team revealed that the hotspots or areas that had the highest number of new COVID-19 cases in the past two weeks were Metro Manila, Cavite, Rizal, Batangas, Laguna, Bulacan, Negros Occidental, and Iloilo.

The experts also urged the government to consider reimposing a stricter quarantine classification or implementing localized lockdowns in Bauan in Batangas, Calbayog in Western Samar, and General Trias in Cavite.

The tightening of restrictions in three areas was recommended due to the increasing daily attack rate of COVID-19 in the past two weeks.

The daily attack rate per 1,000 people in Bauan rose from 6.2% on October 4 to 11.9% on October 11, in Calbayog from 5.1% to 8%, and in General Trias from 4.9% to 7.6%.
