Details of the COVID-19 positive cases (as of August 8, 2020) in Bicol Region

Requested from DOH by Maria Jihan Sangil at 02:12 AM on Aug 08, 2020.
Purpose: I am currently working on a geographical-predictive model of COVID-19 spread in Bicol region.
Date of Coverage: 03/27/2020 - 08/08/2020
Tracking no: #DOH-438810177226

Maria Jihan 02:12 AM, Aug 08, 2020

Dear DOH Region 5,

I have been manually encoding a database on COVID-19 positive cases in Bicol Region since March 27, 2020. It is a combination of your official press release (via facebook) and additional details from LGU leaders. I am an analyst/Big Data Researcher and I am currently working on a geographically-predictive model for COVID-19 spread. For the model to be accurate and applicable in Philippine context , I need as detailed data as possible. I understand that it cannot be in a barangay level, but any detail would greatly help me create an accurate model. 

Thank you and best.

Maria Jihan 02:33 AM, Aug 08, 2020

Also, may I request for the data to be sent in Machine Readable Format? Thank you very much and may God bless you.

Thank you very much for the reply. 

I am respectfully requesting for the August 8 details for the covid-19 positive individuals for Bicol Region, specifically Bicol Cases numbers 520 to 551. The basic fields are:

Date confirmed, Province, City/Municipality, Barangay, Sex, Age, Asymptomatic/Symptomatic, Status (died/recovered/active). 

Thank you very much. I normally encode the scanned image files on your Facebook Page, but the following details were not published. Hence, the gap on my dataset.

Thank you and god bless.
