Mayor Emi Calixto Rubiano said on Monday that Pasay City recorded zero admission of COVID-19 patients in two isolation facilities in the city.

Rubiano said that based on records on April 26,  the Pasay City Sports Complex with 59 beds and Burgos Elementary School with a 54-bed capacity, both recorded zero admission and only four patients confined.

She said the two other quarantine facilities in the city — Folk Arts Theater has 26 bed vacancies and 49 patients confined and 11 already for discharge; and Mall of Asia, the city’s largest isolation facility, has 17 bed vacancies with 92 patients still confined, 17 admitted,  and six for discharge.

The mayor said “recording zero admission is a clear indication that the city government’s system prevent-detect-isolate-treat and reintegrate approach was effective in the fight against the virus.”

Rubiano said the City Health Office (CHO) recorded 325 active cases and only 41 new cases on April 25.

She said the city government will continue to support COVID patients as well as their families by giving them grocery bags containing fruits, vegetables, and medicines.
