Las Pinas City is constructing a 90-bed isolation facility for COVID-19 patients using 26 container vans donated by Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) Secretary Mark Villar.

City Administrator Rey Balagulan said that the isolation facility is located in a vacant lot near Goodyear Building in Barangay Almanza.

According to Balagulan, each 40-footer container van will be divided into four rooms and designed per Department of Health (DOH) guidelines and recommendation with proper ventilation, toilet, and bath for each air-conditioned room. A designated area for medical fronliners will also be included.


The city administrator further said that the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Disease-Coordinated Operations to Defeat Epidemic (CODE) commended the city’s response efforts in fighting the spread of COVID-19.

Balagulan said that Villar was happy to note that the city is one of the local government units which has low rate of confirmed COVID-19 cases and highest recovery rate.

As of this date, the city recorded a total of 2875 confirmed cases, recoveries of 2,461, and 302 active cases.
