Dr. Guido David said the epicenters are the National Capital Region, Davao Region, Calabarzon, and some parts of Central Luzon.

“Ang epicenters ngayon nasa Metro Manila, Davao, and Calabarzon. Nandoon pa rin ‘yun sa Quezon, nakikita natin tumataas pa ang kaso. Sa Central Luzon, actually kasama din ‘yan, dahil tumataas sa Bulacan, at saka sa Pampanga,” David said.

As the government eased some restrictions regarding the pandemic, Professor Ranjit Rye, also of OCTA Research, reminded the public to observe caution to avoid the spread of the disease.

Rye added that the government should work on their communication with the public about the threat of virus transmission.

In its latest report, OCTA Research identified eight areas of concern due to the spike in COVID-19 cases: National Capital Region or Metro Manila, Davao del Sur, Quezon, Negros Occidental, Pampanga, Bulacan, Misamis Oriental and Western Samar.

Health Secretary Francisco Duque III on Tuesday said Metro Manila and other areas were placed under general community quarantine (GCQ) to prevent the potential surge of COVID-19 cases during the Christmas season.
