This was announced by National Action Plan (NAP) Against COVID-19 Deputy Chief Implementer Sec. Vince Dizon during an inspection of the facility’s ongoing construction on Monday.
BIGGEST QUARANTINE FACILIY IN METRO MANILAThe mega quarantine facility, located in Parañaque City, is funded by the Razon Group through its construction arm Prime Metro BMD Corporation, and Bloomberry Cultural Foundation, Inc.
“We want to thank the Razon Group and Prime BMD, to Mr. Enrique Razon, Jr., for this very, very generous donation,” Dizon said.
Dizon also expressed gratitude to Meralco and the Maynilad Water Services Inc. for providing power and water connections to the facility.
Dizon said the mega quarantine center is one of the additional Covid-19 facilities that will be built to service Metro Manila, Bulacan, and the Calabarzon Region.
“A lot of the cases are mild and asymptomatic cases, up to 98.5 percent to 99 percent. We are going to have to house them and allow them to get better, roughly for two weeks, and these are the facilities that are going to house them,” Dizon said.
DPWH Undersecretary Emil Sadain, who also joined the inspection, said his department has finished a total of 300 quarantine facilities all over the country and is constructing 95 more for completion this month until the early part of September.
These facilities have a total capacity of around 13,000 beds.
