"Pagdating sa ating health capacity na kailangan pataasin, dito sa lingo ng karagdagang ECQ, meron tayong 110 additional moderate to severe beds na bubuksan na po at magiging operational sa Quezon Institute," Preidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said.
He added, "Pagkatapos ng one week, kung napatunayan na gumana ang PDITR (Prevent, Detect, Isolate, Treat, and Reintegrate) pwede na tayong mag MECQ sa susunod na linggo, pero titignan po muna natin ang resulta ng karagdagang ECQ."
