The Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) has boosted the capacity of quarantine facilities in New Clark City to address the resurgence of Covid-19 cases in the province.

In a statement, BCDA President and National Task Force Against Covid-19 Deputy Chief Implementer Vince Dizon said a building at the National Government Administrative Center (NGAC) shall be converted into a Temporary Treatment and Monitoring Facility (TTMF) catering to mild and asymptomatic cases.

The additional facility is expected to raise Clark’s quarantine capacity by 171 beds.

The total currently stands at 1,121 beds.

As of April 11, a total of 815 are occupied by Covid-19 patients.

“The government recognizes the need to beef up our isolation capacity amid the spike in Covid-19 cases. We hope to ease the burden of hospitals by building more facilities for patients with mild and asymptomatic cases,” Dizon said in the statement.
