78 porsyento ng mga isolation facility sa National Capital Region ang okupado na.

Inanunsyo ito ni Department of Health Undersecretary Leopoldo Vega, isang araw matapos ipatupad ng gobyerno ang general community quarantine (GCQ) sa NCR, Bulacan, Cavite, Rizal at Laguna.

Kabilang sa mga isolation facility ang mga quarantine hotel at temporary treatment and monitoring facilities o TTMF.

“We need to increase our isolation facilities because our TTMFs and isolation hotels are already occupied at 78%. If we have 8,000 new COVID-19 cases and 4,000 are in NCR since 63% of cases are in NCR, with 97% of them mild and asymptomatic, we need an extra number of isolation facilities,” ani Vega sa Laging Handa briefing, Martes.

“Ito ang dapat unahin natin, kasi ang ospital, last line of defense ‘yan for moderate and severe cases. Most of our cases are asymptomatic and mild, and so our first line of defense should be the TTMFs,” paliwanag niya pa.

Ipinatupad ang GCQ bubble — na magtatagal mula Marso 22 hanggang Abril 4 — dahil sa patuloy na pagdami ng mga kaso ng COVID-19.
