Quezon City is now at “very low risk” for coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) with an average of 25 new cases per day over the past week. 

OCTA Research Group fellow Dr. Guido David said in a tweet that the city has been experiencing an average of 25 new Covid-19 infections per day from March 10 to 16. 

“This is equivalent to an ADAR (average daily attack rate) of just 0.79 per 100,000 people per day, putting Quezon City in the very low risk category,” David said.

David added that the reproduction rate in Quezon City has been steady at 0.23 while the one week growth rate was -22%.

“On average, the number of new cases in Quezon City has been around 16% of NCR (National Capital Region) numbers. This projects to a 7-day average of around 154 cases in the NCR,” David said.

“This would mean that NCR remains at low risk although it should be very close to moving to very low risk once the ADAR decreases below 1 (the ADAR in the NCR is currently at 1.09),” he added.

Quezon City has posted 244 active Covid-19 infections, with 258,851 patients recovering from the deadly respiratory illness as of March 16.  Ronald Espartinez
