In the northern district hospital, NegOcc has opened the Covid-19 wing

On Friday, the province administration of Negros Occidental revealed the 100-bed coronavirus disease 2019 (Covid-19) Isolation Facility at the district hospital in Cadiz, Spain.

The inaugural rituals marked Governor Eugenio Jose Lacson’s first public appearance in exactly one week after he took a health leave on January 21 and tested positive for the virus the next day.

“Right now, we’re expanding our Covid-19 hospital’s capacity. We now have a total of 93 beds, plus I believe another hundred in this new facility. During the program, the governor addressed hospital officials and workers, saying, “I hope you haven’t grown tired of taking care of the Negrenses.”

The Cadiz District Hospital was designated as the province’s first health institution specialized in Covid-19 cases when the epidemic began in March 2020.

When the number of cases continued to rise, Lacson ordered the Valladolid District Hospital in Valladolid town and the Valeriano M. Gatuslao Memorial District Hospital in Himamaylan City, both in southern Negros, to be designated as Covid-19 facilities.

However, when infections decreased at the end of 2021, the two hospitals were given permission to treat medical conditions other than Covid-19.

“I sincerely hope that the current situation does not necessitate the opening of the two more Covid-19 facilities.” “I’m hoping the center here will suffice,” he continued.

Lacson stressed the importance of vaccination in the fight against the virus, stating that he believes getting vaccinated and obtaining a booster dose helped him deal with the infection successfully.

He went on to say, “There’s really greater motivation now to promote immunization.”

According to Dr. Josephine Pahamtang, chief of the Cadiz District Hospital, 124 Covid-19 patients have been hospitalized following a recent rise in cases.

“It’s time to open the building so that the people of the province may benefit from it,” she continued.

The Covid-19 Isolation Facility at the Cadiz District Hospital, according to Provincial Administrator Rayfrando Diaz II, will help Negros Occidental not only during the pandemic but also beyond.

“The health sector has been given priority under Governor Lacson, and this is a testament to that,” he said.

According to the Provincial Incident Management Team’s report, Negros Occidental had 2,903 current Covid-19 instances as of January 28.
