Cobonpue: Covid-19 patients sa Chong Hua dili alarming

GIHIMAKAK ni Kenneth Cobonpue, chairman sa Regional Development Council-Central Visayas (RDC) 7, ang viral message nga giingong usa ka doktor nagbutyag nga ang sitwasyon sa Chong Hua Hospital niabot sa 'alarming levels' ug ang off-site field center puno na.

"For the past six weeks, the average occupancy of Covid-19 patients in Chong Hua Hospital is 60 patients. Is it overflowing? No," matod ni Cobonpue sa SunStar Cebu.

Matod niya, ang gidaghanon sa Covid-19 admissions per day sa Chong Hua Hospital naa lang gihapon sa 5 to 8 patients per day sukad sa Mayo 2020.

Dugang niya nga dili alarming level bisan kapin sa 10 ka bag-ong Covid-19 admissions per day sa ospital panahon sa enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) nga nagsugod niadtong Marso 28, 2020.

"In other words, some of these patients are just waiting to be discharged safely. With the newly increased capacity of both the VSMMC (Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center) and DOH TBRL (Tb Reference Laboratory) labs, this backlog is now being addressed," dugang niya.

Sama sa ubang offsite centers sa Covid-19 patients nga gipadako sa maong 'viral fake message.'

Gipasabot niya nga ang Ateneo de Cebu-Sacred Heart School (SHS) Bayanihan Center dunay 40 ka pasyente sa pasilidad nga dunay 48-bed capacity ug 10 ang gipagawas na.

Ang 130-bed capacity Bayanihan Center sa International Eucharistic Congress (IEC) building sa Barangay Mabolo, Cebu City bakante usab sa pagkakaron uban sa North Reclamation Area (NRA) nga dunay 166 beds. (WBS)
