Baguio City is already increasing its isolation centers and medical bed capacities as they prepare for a possible surge in COVID-19 cases due to the Delta variant.

According to the LGU, they are coordinating with the Cordillera Disaster Risk Reduction Management Council (CDRRMC) to ensure that they have covered the bases even before another outbreak starts in the city and neighboring towns.

Mayor Benjamin Magalong said in an interview that they are targeting to increase the number of beds initially to 1,025, and later on further increase it to 1,300. He added that at present, the Baguio City Community Isolation Unit at the former Santo Niño Hospital has 360 beds which would be added with 150.
