Pasay hospital reports decline in Covid-19 cases
The situation at the Pasay City General Hospital (PCGH) is more manageable now compared to a few weeks ago as coronavirus disease (COVID-19) cases in the city continue to go down, a PCGH official said in a report by Manila Bulletin.
Dr. John Victor de Gracia, PCGH officer-in-charge, said that despite the downtrend, the hospital remains at 100 percent capacity with moderate to severe cases of COVID-19. He added that their emergency room isolation areas have registered 100-percent occupancy.
However, he said he is thankful that active cases are going down in Pasay City.
“Cases are going down in the community, thank God. But for the hospital, we are still handling a lot of COVID moderate to severe cases,” he said in a text message.
”You can say that it is manageable this time. Hopefully, it continues to get better by the day,” he added.
De Gracia tested positive for COVID-19 on March 26, along with 15 employees of PCGH, at the height of the surge of COVID-19 cases in the city. He said having inoculated helped them and that if it weren’t for the vaccine, their condition would have worsened.
“I’m ok. Still recovering from my COVID pneumonia infection,” said.
“I only have two more employees who are still with active infection but both are mild and asymptomatic and under home quarantine,” he added.
According to the City Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance Unit (CESU), Pasay City logged a total of 555 active COVID-19 cases, with 76 tagged as new cases, on Monday, April 12.
