Infected healthcare workers at Sta. Ana hospital recover

All health workers at Sta. Ana hospital in Manila who were infected by SARS-CoV-2 virus have recovered from the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).


“We are following strict hospital infection protocols, strict social distancing rules and proper hospital cohorting, terminal cleaning and disinfection of Manila infectious Disease Control Center is also completed to all areas making the Hospital a safe workplace,” Sta. Ana Hospital Director Dr. Grace Padilla said.

Padilla also said they already scheduled the third round of mandatory swab testing for the hospital’s healthcare workers. 

“We had zero COVID-19 cases among our healthcare workers for the past two weeks already. However, this small victory shouldn’t make us stop from intensifying our efforts in fighting COVID-19 inside and outside the premises of Sta. Ana Hospital,” Padilla said. 

The hospital management assured that they will closely monitor the health of its healthcare workers even if they have no active cases.

Padilla thanked Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso and Vice Mayor Honey Lacuna-Pangan for the support to the healthcare workers and district hospitals. 

“We thank Mayor Isko and Vice Mayor Honey for their efforts in improving the facilities of Sta. Ana Hospital and the rest of our district hospitals in the city. Aside from this, they were also able to provide our medical and healthcare frontliners with new equipment that will ensure their safety as they proceed with their work,” she said.
