The Pasay City government reported that its four quarantine facilities now have more bed vacancies indicating that the spread of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the city has been minimized.
In a report to Mayor Emi Calixto-Rubiano, the City Disaster Risk and Reduction Management (CDRRMO) said Pasay City Sports Complex with 60 bed capacity now has 45 bed vacancies and only 15 individuals are currently confined and are recovering from the disease.
Rubiano said Burgos Elementary School with 44 beds now has 30 vacant beds and three patients were discharged on April 18 and two more on April 19.
She said the city’s biggest quarantine facility — the Mall of Asia — has 132 beds with 87 COVID-19 patients currently confined and 22 beds that are vacant.
The mayor said that other patients confined at the MOA quarantine facility are set for discharge.
The Folk Art Theater with 97 beds now has 14 vacant beds. Fifteen patients were discharged on April 18 and 19.
Rubiano has credited the city’s intensified contact tracing which is part of the prevent-detect-isolate-treat-reintegrate (PDITR) system, as one of the keys in lowering the number of cases in the city.
She said the City Health Office reported on April 18 a total of 390 active cases with 40 new cases.
