Cases of Covid-19 are declining fast, as proven by the 35 percent decrease observed in the past week, OCTA researcher Dr. Guido David said on Sunday.

During the seven-day period, infections went down from 8,400 to 5,400.

“Mabilis ang pagbaba ng numbers. Ang reproduction rate sa buong bansa ay nasa 0.52 na at ang seven-day average sa bansa ay 5,400. Noong nakaraang linggo, 8,400 so bumaba siya to 5,400 in one week, 35 percent decrease ‘yan, or negative growth rate (Numbers are decreasing fast. The reproduction rate nationwide is now at 0.52 with a seven-day average of 5,400 new cases daily. Last week, it was at 8,400 and dropped to 5,400 within a week, which was a 35 percent decrease or negative growth rate),” he said.

David said the decline could be attributed to the vaccination campaign since those getting infected were people without jabs, or were vaccinated but with comorbidities or those whose bodies cannot reproduce as many antibodies to fight the virus.

“Isa sa madaling paliwanag sa [madaling pagbaba ng kaso] ay ang pagbabakuna dahil medyo marami na tayong nabakunahan. Aside from that, mayroon ding may mga dala na ng antibodies dahil previously infected na sila (one explanation is the high rate of vaccination because many have been inoculated. Aside from that, there are those who are carriers of antibodies after they have been previously infected by Covid-19),” he explained.

David urged the public to strictly adhere to health and safety protocols despite the improving situation to help businesses and the economy recover from the devastating impact of the pandemic.
