BACOOR CITY, Cavite Apr. 22 (PIA) -- Bacoor City Mayor Lani Mercado-Revilla reported on the status of the city's COVID-19 isolation and quarantine facilities in a press statement issued April 21.

The Mayor reported there were 63 confirmed cases in the city as of April 20, 2020 and most of these are those working in NCR as health workers putting them at a higher risk of being infected. They are currently confined in the hospitals where they work.

The city government is still awaiting the results of the mass testing done last week and hopes that no additional new cases of the corona virus disease will develop.

"Kami ay nananawagan sa mga kababayan natin na makiisa sa mga hakbangin at panuntunan ng Lokal na Pamahalaan dahil para din ito sa ating kaligtasan. Maaaring magkaroon tayo ng ilang mga karagdagang paghihigpit sa mga barangay na may mataas na kaso ng COVID-19," pakiusap ni Mayor Lani sa mga taga Bacoor.

(I am requesting everyone to cooperate and follow the steps and policies of the local government for everyone's safety. We might even be implementing a few stern measures and strict protocols in barangays with high number of COVID-19 confirmed cases, Mayor Lani pleaded the constituents.)

Meanwhile the Mayor stated the city's designated isolation and quarantine facilities like the Golden Oasys Hotel being used as quarantine facility for OFW residents of Bacoor and the Aliw Inn where suspected and probable patients undergo self-quarantine are almost full.

On the other hand, additional isolation and quarantine facilities in the Southern Tagalog Regional Hospital with a capacity of 50 beds are currently being constructed while freight containers will be converted to put up a 20-room isolation facility.
