PAG-CONVERT SA HOTELS BILANG HOSPITAL FACILITIES SUPORTADO NG SENADORA
SUPORTADO ni Senadora Nancy Binay ang rekomendasyon ng Philippine College of Physicians na i-convert ang ilang hotel bilang temporary hospital facilities para sa mga Covid19 patient na may mild hanggang moderate symptoms.
“The projected increases and the recent surge in COVID-19 cases have already weakened the entire healthcare system, causing many hospitals in Metro Manila to reach full capacity. Our health workers already feel overwhelmed and many facilities are already overly packed with people seeking immediate medical care,” pahayag ni Binay.
Sinabi ni Binay na ang panawagan ay makatutulong upang mabawasan ang hirap ng mga healthworker at mga ospital na kasalukuyang tumatanggap ng severe cases.
“This would require sacrifice on the part of the private sector, but I believe the hotel industry is very much willing to help and is well-equipped to respond to the challenge,” dagdag ng senadora.
“They are in a unique position to help and complement our hospitals and local quarantine centers to support our healthcare system. They have the backbone in providing viable solutions to quarantine challenges at this very critical time,” giit pa niya.
“I am one with the PCP in urging the IATF to study this proposal at the soonest,” dagdag pa ni Binay.
