The City-owned JR Borja General Hospital recently opened its new 16-bed Emerging and Re-Emerging Infectious Disease (EREID) Annex providing additional facility for mild and moderate Covid-19 patients. Those patients temporarily housed in tents are now transferred to the EREID Annex.
The hospital attended 65 Covid-positive patients for the period July 16 to August 15, which is significantly lower than 120 patients they attended to in June.
Meanwhile, construction continues for the 3rd and 4th floor Covid wards at the Pimentel Building.
