- The Philippine General Hospital is one of the referral hospitals for COVID-19 patients
- It already admitted more than 180 individuals who have contracted the said virus
- Its spokesperson stated that 66 percent of those patients have recovered already

The spokesperson of the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) revealed that 66 percent of COVID-19 patients in the said medical facility have recovered already.
KAMI learned that since February 3, a total of 185 infected patients have been admitted to the said hospital. 123 of them were successful in the fight against the said virus.
The aforementioned figure matters a lot in the country’s COVID-19 statistics since PGH serves as one of the referral hospitals.
“Nakakatugon po kami rito sa PGH. Simula po noong February 3, 123 na ang na-discharge dahil naka-recover, tapos 33 naman po ang namatay o mga 15% to 16 %,” Jonas del Rosario told News TV.
“Karamihan po ng na-admit sa amin ay nasa advanced stage na po [ng COVID-19]. Meron rin pong mga mild cases, pero mas marami po talaga iyong moderate to severe to critically-ill,” he added.
The said spokesperson disclosed that the PGH has opened another wing for COVID-19 patients in the country.
Del Rosario further stated that the hospital has 600 medical workers so everyone is assured that there will be no problems in terms of manpower.
“Nagbukas po kami ng isang pay wing ng ospital para roon po sa mga pasyente na may kakahayahan po magbayad. Mayroon rin naman pong assistance from PhilHealth depending on the case rate…” he uttered.
“Huwag po sila mag-alala kasi we have 600 health care workers here. Sa isang araw po, 400 po ang nagtatrabaho, kaya mayroon pong nagrerelyebo sa kanila,” he added.
In a previous article by KAMI, the Philippines has been recording more recoveries than fatalities in the past couple of days.

A Filipino found his own way to help frontliners amid pandemic. “They had to walk an hour, an hour and a half to get to work. I mean, coming from an 8-hour shift sa hospital, tapos palalakarin mo pa yung nurse o kahit security guard. Parang hindi makatarungan, diba?” – on HumanMeter!
