Baguio is eyeing more disinfection tents in strategic areas in the Summer Capital.
Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong said the design of the disinfection tents is based on the model from the University of the Philippines (UP).
The UP model can be constructed by the City Buildings and Architecture Office (CBAO) using available materials.
Sanitation tents procured through the regular bidding process cost around P220,000.
But the UP model costs around P9,000 using available materials.
The disinfection tents are needed by medical frontliners who are handling persons under investigation.
