The Philippines recorded less than 2,500 Covid-19 cases for the third consecutive days just below the lower end of the projected range, said an OCTA research fellow on Friday. 

On Nov. 3, the Philippines recorded 1,591 new cases, on Nov. 4 added 1,766, and on Friday, the Department of Health announced 2,376 new cases. Lower compared to the 26,303 record-high on Sept. 11, 2021. 

The National Capital Region (NCR) returned to its state before the surge of the highly contagious Delta Variant, according to Dr. Guido David. It also went back to the February pre-surge level with cases below 500. 

The 7-day average in the country decreased to 2,816, the lowest since March 2 to 8. Current trends project a possible decrease to less than 1,000 per day by the end of November.

Dr. David reminded the public to be careful, especially in provinces where vaccination coverage is not that high. 

In the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) announcement, NCR has been eased with restrictions to Alert Level 2 from Nov. 5 to 21 and scrapped curfews due to the improvement of cases.

The total number of active cases in PH now is 37,377.  It tallied 2,716,524 who have overcome the virus.
