The provincial government of Benguet said its main COVID-19 hospital and treatment center is now allocating 74% of its beds to active cases.

Dr. Meliarazon Dulay, Benguet General Hospital’s chief and the province’ Covid-19 point person, said that 111 out of the 150 bed capacity of the hospital are used either for COVID-19 positive patients or suspected cases.

“We cannot refuse any patient that is why we constantly adjusted,” she said.
