NTF PLANS TO ESTABLISH ONE HOSPITAL COMMAND IN NORTHERN MINDANAO AMID RISING COVID-19 CASES
The National Task Force (NTF) Against COVID-19 is eyeing the establishment of a One Hospital Command for Region 10 or Northern Mindanao due to the rising number of COVID-19 patients in the region.
According to NTC COVID-19 Chief Implementer Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr., the establishment of a One Hospital Command will ensure effective and efficient health facility referral for patients.
“Gagawa tayo ng One Hospital Command sa pamumuno ng ating Regional Director at ng Northern Mindanao Medical Center,” Galvez said.
Iligan City was placed under modified, enhanced community quarantine (MECQ) until September 30 because of its increasing cases of infection.
