DPWH to build offsite modular hospitals for COVID-19 patients

ILIGAN CITY, Sep. 8 (PIA) - The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) continues to lead the government's efforts in putting up healthcare facilities across the country in response to the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) pandemic.

During the Laging Handa Virtual Network Briefing on Monday, September 7, DPWH Undersecretary Emil Sadain said they plan to establish offsite modular hospitals in response to the lack of ICU bed capacities in hospitals.

He said the first offsite modular hospital they were going to build will be in the Quezon Institute (QI) compound where it will have a 110-ICU bed capacity.

According to him, QI offsite modular hospital will be managed by the Department of Health and will cater to patients with moderate and severe cases.

"We are preparing to start within this month in QI, we will also build an offsite hospital in the Lung Center of the Philippines, Jose Reyes Memorial Hospital, and we are studying putting up one at Amang Rodriguez Memorial Hospital in Marikina," he said.

Sadain, who heads the DPWH Task Force to Facilitate Augmentation of Local and National Health Facilities, also reported that DPWH has already completed 340 quarantine and isolation facilities across the country while 262 more are set to be finished by the end of September until early October.

He said these 602 quarantine and isolation facilities which will cater to mild and asymptomatic COVID-19 patients have a 23,000-bed capacity.

In Iligan City, the DPWH has turned over a 40-bed capacity quarantine facility located in Barangay Poblacion to Iligan City Mayor Celso G. Regencia on August 26 to help curb the spread of coronavirus in the city.

Two (2) similar multi-purpose buildings located in  Barangay Acmac and Barangay Tomas Cabili Iligan were also converted by DPWH into quarantine facilities each with 40-bed cubicles each.

These facilities will provide not only the much-needed treatment of COVID-19 patients but also the proper care of locally stranded individuals and returning overseas Filipinos undergoing a mandatory 14-day period of self-isolation for the protection of their families. (APB/PIA-ICIC)

Para sa mga Pulahan

Kung narito ka ngayon. Marahil ay isa ka sa mga napadpad o mas magandang sabihin ay isa ka sa marites na nakatambay sa page ng mga kakampinks. Kung tama ako, para sayo talaga to!  Para sa mga PULAHAN. Wala ba kayong page na nagmamahal sa inyo kaya andito kayo sa page ng mga kakampinks? :) Salamat pa rin sa pagdalaw kahit ang purpose niyo talaga ay ang ibash kami. ✌️

Bakit Uto-Uto ang mga Pulahan?

Yung tipong habang tumitingin ka sa feed mo may nakita kang nag-share ng mga conspiracy theory. Bakit ba naeenganyo sila? Paniwalang paniwala sila. Basahin ang maikling kasagutan tungkol dito. It makes them feel special and different. It gives them a feeling of being better than others, of having their eyes opened to a 'truth' that others don't see. That's why some call non-believers 'sheeple.' I think it's similar to the feeling we get whenever we learn an obscure yet interesting piece of trivia. The thought of "No one else knows it!" I also think conspiracies appeal to the way humans think, especially now. A desire to search for patterns. There has to be reason and purpose for anything. But this is not right! I still blame the lack of the fundamental research skills that needs to be taught in school. I believe you get to have a full subject on your 4th year, but investigative skills and fact checking should be honed at a young age.

'Di kami nagkamali, we already expected those things to happen... You're making fun of our opinions pero 'di niyo magets na para 'yun sa ikabubuti ng lahat. Now, why so sudden bigla kayong nagreklamo? eh diba ginusto niyo 'yan, honestly dito samin nagsasabing nagsisisi sila sa naboto nila, for me hindi na kasalanan ng mga politiko na naloko nila kayo dahil there are so many evidences na.
