Amai Pakpak Hospital declares full capacity

MARAWI CITY –  As the deadly coronavirus disease continues to wreak havoc in Mindanao, many of the biggest hospitals in the region have announced full capacity and they could no longer accept additional Covid-19 patients.

This is now the scenario with the Amai Pakpak Medical Center in this city.

The management of said hospital, the biggest hospital located in Marawi City, announced they could no longer attend to additional Covid-19 patients, considering that they have reached full capacity.

The hospital’s covid-19 intensive care unit (ICU) and its wards have reached its maximum capacity following the reported surge of coronavirus disease 2019 in Lanao del Sur, as well as in nearby cities and provinces that send their patients in said hospital in Marawi City.

As this developed, the APMC issued an advisory for those people experiencing the symptoms of the deadly virus to seek medical help in other medical facilities in their respective areas, or to the nearest rural health centers.

The hospital said they are operating in a reduced capacity and it would be hard for their hospital to accommodate more patients.

They also said they need to prioritize the medical needs and treatment of admitted patients.

The hospital right now is experiencing a shortage of medical oxygen supply since its suppliers could no longer help in providing the needed oxygen.

As of September 6, the hospital has already admitted 191 covid-19 contracted patients. On that same day, it was learned, 21 patients were admitted in one day alone.

Based on hospital record, 59 patients were from Iligan City, 44 from the different towns of Lanao del Sur, 37 from Marawi City, and 22 from Lanao del Norte, 2 each from Cagayan de Oro City and Misamis Oriental, and 1 from Davao City and Zamboanga del Sur.- with PIA reports
