It was learned that the construction phase of the facility started in October last year and was even due for completion on January2021.

The facility, Dr Alejandro said, will be named as Sarangani Covid-19 Center since it was built for the purpose of giving the people in the province who were contracted with the virus, to have a spaceous place for admittance and treatment.

Sarangani Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon has greatly helped for the speedy and final construction phase which were delayed due to some concerns that weren’t addressed properly.
