42 of 159 NCR hospitals at critical level -DOH

Forty-two (42) out of 159 hospitals in the National Capital Region are at critical level or almost out of vacant beds, the Department of Health (DOH) said Thursday.

According to a Balitanghali report, the DOH also said some hospitals in the provinces are already at full capacity, and not just in Metro Manila.

Treatment czar health undersecretary Leopoldo Vega said some are calling to the One COVID-19 Referral Hospital to request for a hospital in the National Capital Region.

The Pasay City General Hospital emergency room reopened after it temporarily closed due to full capacity of patients.

As of 6:30 a.m., there are two available COVID beds for adults at the said hospital. However, the COVID ICU is still fully occupied. -MDM, GMA News
