MANILA – Instead of being downgraded to modified general community quarantine, Metro Manila may return to “stricter” community quarantine by July 16, the Malacañang said. The Department of Health (DOH), for its part, said that state hospitals in Metro Manila are not yet overwhelmed with COVID-19 cases but are in “moderate risk level.” “We go back to stricter quarantine or provide more facilities,” Roque said in an online media forum yesterday when asked about the government’s possible action in case of strained hospital capacity.center_img Presidential spokesperson Harry Roque said yesterday that it could happen if hospitals in the capital city hit capacity due to a surge in coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) cases.  Based on DOH data as of June 30, Metro Manila’s critical care and isolation bed utilization were at 62.18%, while the doubling time for COVID-19 cases was 8.19 days. The National Capital Region has been under general community quarantine since June, which entailed easing of restrictions on public transport and businesses in a bid to move the economy forward. last_img read more
