The number of coronavirus patients at the Philippine General Hospital has exceeded its initial bed allocation for the respiratory disease, an official said Thursday.

To accommodate virus patients, the PGH used “buffer beds” in non-COVID-19 wards, he said.

We are fixing the arrangement of the patients. COVID and non-COVID patients cannot mix.

Del Rosario said the spike in patient admission might be due to the Philippines’ increased testing capacity and eased lockdowns.
