Manila opens new quarantine facility at PLM
Manila opened a 66-bed COVID-19 quarantine facility at the Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila, the 14th facility to be opened in the nation’s capital.
Manila City Mayor Francisco 'Isko Moreno' Domagoso said this is the biggest quarantine facility built by the local government so far. He was joined by Vice Mayor Maria Shielah ‘Honey’ Lacuna-Pangan during the launch.
"This quarantine facility, modesty aside, through the help of Secretary Villar and Engineer Macud, makikita mo pang world-class ‘yung sa PLM, mas defined. It's a good experience for us in to really do as many quarantine facility as possible," Domagoso said.
"Through experience, nag-i-innovate na nag-i-inovate yung facility at nagiging safe na safe sa medical frontliners and to the patients at mas nagiging komportable," he added.
Likewise, Domagoso emphasized the importance of free mass testing and construction of quarantine facilities, saying that these measures would be the “most effective way to detect (COVID-19) and win the war against the pandemic.”
"So mabibigay ng libre, wala kang tosgas, tapos may ample healthcare, tapos may pang chi-cha pamilya mo, I think wala na tayong dapat masyadong ipangamba," Domagoso said.
The Mayor also encouraged the public to avail free COVID-19 mass testing offered by the city government through walk-in centers and drive-thru sites.
"Ang kailangan nalang talagang mag-iingat and be honest to ourselves. By being honest we're already showing love and compassion to our family and to the community," he added.
