PH coronavirus watch: Confirmed cases per hospital, as of April 4, 2020

MANILA, Philippines – Health authorities continue to ramp up efforts to detect possible cases of the novel coronavirus in the Philippines.

The Department of Health (DOH) tracker showed that the government agency has tested 5,530 people as of 4 pm on Saturday, April 4. 

The tracker showed that there are 1,323 patients under investigation (PUI). It previously showed the number of patients under monitoring (PUM) until April 3. There was no PUM entry for April 4. 

The tracker reflected 3,094 confirmed cases. It also showed that 144 have died and 57 have recovered.

The patients are admitted to 123 health facilities across the Philippines.

At least 4 hospitals had announced they already reached maximum capacity: St Luke's Medical Center Quezon City, St Luke's Medical Center Global CityThe Medical City in Pasig City, and the Makati Medical Center.

All numbers are from the DOH's nCoV tracker.

President Rodrigo Duterte declared a state of public health emergency in the Philippines on March 9 due to the confirmation of local transmission of the virus. Metro Manila and Luzon are currently under an "enhanced community quarantine" or lockdown. 

The President also signed on March 25 the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act of 2020 that grants him 30 special powers to address the outbreak in the country. 

The World Health Organization classified the new coronavirus outbreak as a pandemic on March 11, and warned that the spread and severity of the illness was due to "alarming levels of inaction."

As of Saturday, the number of novel coronavirus cases globally was at more than 1,122,320  with 59,456  deaths, across 190 countries and territories. – with reports from Agence France-Presse/Rappler.com
