Araullo quarantine facility opens for patients
Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso led the opening of the quarantine facility for coronavirus disease-2019 (COVID-19) patients at Araullo High School in Manila on May 14.
He conducted an inspection of the 40-bed isolation facility that was built in partnership with the Junior Chamber International (JCI) Manila.
The Manila mayor said that they are setting up more isolation facilities to augment the Del Pan quarantine facility as part of the city’s preparation for its transition to modified enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) preparations after May 15.
He said they are aiming to prepare some 500 beds for the city’s COVID-19 patients.
“We will prepare by building more quarantine facilities in the city. It is true that our city government is aggressive now, even from the start, but we will be more aggressive,” he said in Filipino in his city address Thursday night.
This is because the city is expecting a surge in the number of infected residents during the modified ECQ (MECQ) as more industries, businesses, and services will be allowed to operate, according to the mayor.
The other quarantine facilities will be built at Tondo Sports Complex, Tondo High School, T. Paez High School, Patricia Covered Court, Del Pilar High School, P. Gomez High School, Arellano High School, Dapitan Sports Complex, and Bacood Elementary School.
Domagoso also said inflatable isolation tents have been installed at the San Andres Complex.
As of Thursday evening, the Philippine capital has a total of 957 confirmed COVID-19 cases with 153 recoveries and 88 deaths, data from the city government showed.
