Provincial gov't turns over emergency health facilities to AJDH

PUDTOL, Apayao--The provincial government recently turned over four   units of emergency health facilities to Amma Jadsac District Hospital (AJDH) in Poblacion, Pudtol to ensure the safety and comfort of health workers and other frontliners in the performance of their daunting task in curbing the spread of COVID-19.


Governor Eleanor C. Bulut-Begtang    and Pudtol Mayor Hector Reuel Pascua led the turn-over and blessing of the facilities furnished with complete beddings, comfort room and air conditioner. The ready-to-use units shall serve as temporary quarantine stations for health personnel or isolation rooms for probable, suspect or even COVID-19 positive cases.

 “We are thankful that finally, despite the restrictions we had due to COVID-19, our hospitals already have these well-equipped facilities as additional quarantine rooms,” the Governor said.

Begtang   approved the purchase of at least 36 prefabricated modular buildings for distribution to all hospitals and border control points provincewide to ensure   adequate facilities in case of surge in COVID-19 cases in the province.

To date, there are already 18 prefabricated modular buildings installed in different provincial border checkpoints and district hospitals including referral hospitals.

The Governor recognized the efforts and sacrifices of the health sector noting that without them risking their safety, the province could not have attained a low positivity rate compared to other provinces in the region. She   commended all medical and health personnel in the various hospitals in the province for their effectiveness in preventing local transmission in their respective areas. (JDP/GSS-PLGU)
