For every 100 Boholanos who turn out to be coronavirus disease (Covid-19)-positive, about 84 of them can recover, data from the Bohol Inter-Agency Task Force (BIATF) for the management of Emerging Infectious Disease show.
Data from September 5 until September 18, as shown in the BIATF daily Covid tracker bares that the Covid recovery rate for Sept 5 registered ate 83.32 for every 100 while for Sept 18, the figure stayed at 84.28 for every 100.
And while the recovery rate could be a welcome relief as Bohol struggles to wrestle the virus that has since killed 389 locals between May 2020 and September 19, 2021, Bohol has seen a chilling 84 deaths in the last two weeks.
Despite a 2.3 % of those who has been infected with the virus ending in death for the whole duration from May 2020 to September 2021, a closer look at the most recent data would reveal a far more alarm-raising scenario.
In the last two weeks for example, from 305 registered deaths in Sept 5, the figure blew to 389 death cases in Sept 18, with some 84 deaths happening within the last 14 days.
This then elevates the death average in the last two weeks to 6 deaths recorded per day all over Bohol.
Aggravating the picture, is the continued number of daily active Covid cases in the last two weeks.
According to a consolidated tally-board tracking the Covid situation in Bohol as per BIATF daily Covid tracker, since September 5, there were only two days when the number of active cases registered went below the 2,000 per day mark.
Last September 7, the active Covid cases went down to 1,951 while last Sept 9, the figure also registered only 1,984 active cases for that day.
From September 10 to the present, active Covid cases in Bohol went on to a rampage of over 2,000 cases per day.
The record would also show that since September 5, new cases per day has not gone down past double digits.
The daily tally of new Covid cases in fact peaked last Sept 13 when the BIATF reported some 307 new cases. (rahc/PIA-7/Bohol
