Mandaluyong City is in need of medical professionals for the makeshift hospital it built for persons being monitored for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19).

City Public Information Officer Jimmy Isidro said the city is now looking for doctors and nurses who are willing to serve at the city’s temporary hospital intended for persons under investigation (PUIs) and persons under monitoring (PUMs) for the disease.

“If anyone wants to apply, we are currently in need of 34 nurses and 24 doctors for our makeshift hospital,” Isidro told the Manila Bulletin, adding health workers will be compensated by the city government for their services.


Isidro said a huge tent was recently set up for the makeshift quarantine facility, which has a capacity of around 100 beds and equipped with X-rays, ventilators, and other medical equipment.

“We are hoping that our makeshift hospital will be operational within three days,” he said.

As of 4 p.m. of March 30, confirmed COVID-19 cases in Mandaluyong rose to 50, according to the latest tally by the local government.

The city government has also reported five COVID-19 deaths and seven PUI deaths.

Most of the cases were recorded in Barangay Highway Hills (11) and in Barangay Addition Hills (7).

As of writing, the city also has 369 PUMs and 140 PUIs currently undergoing quarantine either in hospitals or in their homes.

With the increase in the number of persons being monitored for COVID-19, three new buildings of the Neptali Gonzales High School have been converted by the city government into a quarantine facility for PUMs and PUIs.

“The buildings were newly constructed and unused. It is yet to be turned over to the Department of Education,” Isidro said.
