PGH CONFIRMS SURGE IN COVID-19 PATIENTS ADMISSIONS
Philippine General Hospital chief Dr. Gap Legaspi confirmed that wards in the hospital are almost full of COVID-19 patients. However, Legaspi attributed the surge in the increased testing capacity.
Philippine General Hospital is the only COVID-19 referral center with a dedicated Pediatric and Obstetric COVID Service.
Thus the increase could be because of the referral bias and may not be truly reflective of the situation in the rest of NCR or the country, Dr. Gap Legaspi said.
He also cleared that the hospital is not yet at full occupancy. Still, he asked their Department chairs to take preemptive measures to prepare for the consequences of any downscaling of a Community Quarantine status.
