Nangamusta sa mga pasyente natin sa iba’t ibang building ng ating Centralized Quarantine Facility. From a safe distance, of course.
“We are working double time to pull out more people from the communities so we can care for them here. For the next week, our target is to put 200 more mild cases in #CentralizedQuarantine,” he wrote in the post.
He added that the facilities are ready to accommodate these patients, which will in turn alleviate the further spread of the disease.
“Sa bawat pasyenteng naipapasok natin dito ay maaaring sampung tao ang naligtas natin mula sa COVID. Maaaring isang libo, hindi na natin malalaman,” added the mayor.
He also gave credit to the healthcare workers and frontliners who pitched the idea.
“A big THANK YOU sa mga healthcare staff natin na nagpapatakbo ng pasilidad na to. Too many to mention all—sina Doc BJ, Ms. Anna, etc., at kina RA na unang nagbigay sa kin ng ideya para centralized quarantine na ganito,” he wrote in the comments section of his Facebook post.
Various netizens and Pasig residents have commended the mayor’s initiative.
“Ang aming magiting na mayor, may tunay na malasakit. Buti na lang siya ang aming mayor. Saludo po sa inyo,” said netizen Angie Anzia.
“‘Yan ‘yong urgent needs ng mamamayan ng Pasig, ‘yong makita nila na may NAGMAMALASAKIT at KUMAKALINGA sa ganitong may pandemic, ikaw na nga siguro ang SAGOT at mag PAPABAGO ng aming MAHAL NA LUNGSOD. Salamat po MAYOR VS [Vico Sotto],” added Jun Sison.
