Two of three local government-run hospitals of Quezon City are now at full capacity in terms of Covid-19 patients while quarantine facilities are filling up.
In a Facebook post by the QC government on Friday, the city’s 12 HOPE quarantine facilities for Covid-19 patients are at 82.82 percent, with 1,402 out of 1,693 beds already occupied.
