Two employees of the Pasay City General Hospital (PGCH) who contracted the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) are expected to be discharged today, March 27.

In a text message, PCGH Officer-In-Charge John Victor De Gracia said that two of the five employees who were admitted to the hospital may possibly be discharged, while others are doing well in home quarantine.

On Friday (March 26), PCGH reported that 15 of its employees contracted COVID-19, including De Gracia.

De Garcia, who has already been vaccinated, said the vaccine helped in lessening the severity of his condition, as well as the other frontliners who were infected.

PCGH remains at full capacity as of March 27, with all of its eight Intensive Care Unit (ICU) beds, and 28 COVID beds occupied.

“There are still six confirmed cases at the COVID transition wards waiting to be transferred to our COVID confirmed wards,” he said.

“There are still five probable cases at ER waiting to be admitted at our transition wards,” he added.

As of March 26, Pasay logged a total of 986 active cases, with 162 new cases.
