The City Government of Cagayan de Oro has been spending P44,310 per individual admitted at the City Isolation Units (CIU), Temporary Treatment and Monitoring Facilities (TTMF), TTMF Plus, and the Center for Emerging and Re-emerging Infectious Diseases (CEREID). These expenses cover RT-PCR swab test, packed meals, accommodation for at least 14 days, hygiene kits, medicines and vitamins. Also included in the budget are Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for frontliners, disinfectants, oxygen tanks and medical supplies, among others.
Amid the increasing number of Covid-cases, the city is doing its best to serve especially those infected for more than a year now.
