THE City government of Bacoor turned over 10 container vans which were converted as isolation facilities for COVID 19 patients to the Department of Health (DOH) – CALABARZON (Cavite, Laguna, Batangas, Rizal, Quezon) which will be used to isolate and treat identified patients in the community.

“These units will be handled and managed by the Southern Tagalog Regional Hospital (STRH) where it will be permanently placed. Dahil sa dami ng mga tinatamaan ng virus kailangang gumawa ng paraan upang sila ay magkaroon ng mapaglalagyan na maayos, malinis at ligtas. Nagpapasalamat ako dahil napakahalaga ng ginawang ito ng local na pamahalaan ng Bacoor, kay Mayor Lani Mercado Bautista na siyang nanguna upang maisakatuparan ang proyektong ito at mabigyan ng solusyon at madagdagan ang mga isolation facilities natin dito sa Cavite,” Regional Director Eduardo C. Janairo stated during the turn-over and MOA signing ceremony held at the Southern Tagalog Regional Hospital in Bacoor City on June 3, 2020.

“All suspects, probable and confirmed COVID 19 cases will be confined here and will serve not only the community of Bacoor but also of neighboring municipalities of the province. This is also in preparation for the possibility of a surge in COVID-10 cases” he added.

Each container van was converted as an airconditioned modular temporary shelter in partnership with the city government, Future Home Co., Ltd., Almextech Inc., and Jesus V. Del Rosario Foundation Inc.

The units are located in front of STRH inside the Reyville Subdivision, Bacoor City, Cavite. Patients who are asymptomatic and mild will be admitted in this facility.

Two buildings of the STRH with a 30-bed capacity was also opened and inaugurated for the use of COVID patients.

The ceremony was led by Bacoor City Mayor Lani Mercado-Revilla, DOH Regional Director Dr. Eduardo Janairo and Dr. Ephraim Rubiano.

As of June 4, 2020, CALABARZON has a total of 1,276 cases 107 deaths and 398 recoveries reported.
