The OCTA Research Team on Wednesday said Metro Manila’s Covid-19 indicators over the past seven days suggested that the region was at “low risk” for the disease.

In a report posted by Dr. Guido David on Twitter, OCTA said the reproduction number in Metro Manila increased from 0.62 to 0.71 the past week.

The increase shifted the region from “very low risk” to “low risk” for Covid-19, David said.

However, David said all other indicators remained at the “very low” level.

The one-week average daily attack rate of Covid-19 in the region slightly decreased from 0.66 to 0.54. Positivity rate remained at 1.4 percent.

As of April 28, the region has 2,199 active Covid-19 cases.

Metro Manila is under Alert Level 1 until April 30.

The hospital facility occupancy rate in the region remains at the “safe” level with over 26,000 beds vacant. John Ezekiel J. Hirro
