MANILA, Philippines – Sinabi ng OCTA Research Group na ang “worst is over” sa karamihan ng lugar sa bansa bunsod ng pagbaba ng mga COVID-19 cases.

Ani OCTA Research fellow Guido David na karamihan ng mga kaso ng COVID sa bansa ay naabot na ang sukdulan o papunta na roon.

“We believe that the worst is over in most parts of the country,” ani David sa isang forum.

“We could imagine that the worst is probably over for most of the country because cases have peaked or peaking,” dagdag pa ng eksperto.

Kabilang sa mga lugar na ito ay ang Cebu at Davao City na kanyang inihalimbawa.

“Most of Cebu is now seeing a downward trajectory, although Cebu City is actually more advanced in terms of the decrease. The decrease is happening earlier in Cebu City compared to Mandaue but, nevertheless, we are seeing a decrease in Cebu [and] also in Davao City,” paliwanag pa niya.

Sa kabilang banda, ang mga nararanasang pagkonti ng mga bagong kaso ay hindi dapat maging dahilan para makampante, giit naman ni David.

“It doesn’t mean of course that it’s all clear, we should still follow health protocols as we go out. There’s still a significant number of cases…We still have to self-isolate if we’re feeling symptoms, we have to wear face masks,” aniya pa.

Kabilang sa mga probinsyang nakikitaan ng pagtaas ng COVID-19 cases ay ang Bukidnon, Camiguin, Cotabato, Davao de Oro, Davao del Norte, Davao Occidental, Davao Oriental, Maguindanao, Negros Oriental, Sarangani, South Cotabato and Sultan Kudarat, ayon pa sa OCTA fellow.

“Most of the provinces are in Mindanao. So what happened is the surge happened later in these provinces that’s why they are still at an accelerating stage whereas the surge has already been, has already matured and now on a downward trend in many other provinces, especially in Visayas and Luzon,” giit pa ni David.
