“One good news is, I was told, for the last two days, we have not admitted anybody for Covid. Our numbers are continuously going down,” Philippine General Hospital (PGH) spokesperson Jonas del Rosario on 3 December said in an interview on ABS-CBN News Channel’s “Headstart.”
The PGH is the country’s largest referral center for Covid-19 patients.
Del Rosario said PGH had 350 Covid-19 beds during the surge in August. The hospital is currently attending to only 54 Covid patients.
“Double-digit numbers are really rated occurrence in PGH, but now we are going to the 50s, and who knows, maybe in the next few days or weeks, we will be down to 20s,” he said.
“That is good news because we can now open more, open our hospital to non-Covid patients,” he added.
