Apayao Governor Eleanor Bulut-Begtang on November 17 led the turnover of four quarantine facilities to the Amma Jadsac District Hospital (AJDH) in Pudtol.
The new facilities will be used as isolation rooms for health personnel and for probable, suspect, or positive cases for the coronavirus disease (COVID19).
Begtang earlier approved the purchase of 36 prefabricated modular buildings to be used as quarantine facilities.
The quarantine facilities are equipped with complete beddings, comfort room and air conditioner.
“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,” Begtang said.
