According to the University of the Philippines OCTA Research team, the number of COVID-19 cases in the Philippines has been decreasing.

The team said the country’s reproduction number, which describes the reproduction of COVID-19 cases, has kept its downward trend.

“The number of cases in the Philippines has been decreasing, and currently at less around 2,500 new cases per day (based on case reports),” the OCTA Research team said.

This is lower compared to the almost 4,000 new cases per day recorded during the last week of August.

“The reproduction number in the Philippines is 0.87, in line with the downward trend in test reports,” it added. A reproduction number below 1 means a flattened curve, according to the experts.

Based on the report, these findings were based on the daily reports of COVID-19 cases in the country from August 25 to October 5.

The team said the number of COVID-19 cases in the National Capital Region, the epicenter of the pandemic in the country, also decreased to less than 1,000 new cases per day.
