While the Philippine General Hospital is not yet asking for a timeout, its official shared the exhaustion and difficulties the personnel is facing as COVID-19 cases continue to skyrocket.

“Hindi pa po kami humihingi ng timeout pero nadadama na namin ‘yung sipa ulit. At the same time, pilay kami dahil may ilan kaming health care workers na may sakit so naapektuhan ‘yung aming pagma-man ng aming mga post so medyo nakakaramdam na rin ng pagod,” del Rosario, spokesman of PGH, said in an interview.

“There is a possibility baka kung talagang medyo umaapaw na humingi rin kami ng timeout,” he added.

Moreover, the hospital are worried about recent projections that COVID-19 infections could further increase by the end of the month.

Aside from COVID-10 patient, the state hospital also has other patients to care for.

“Apela ngayon ng PGH na tulungan kami ng ibang ospital na tanggapin ‘yung ibang may non-COVID diagnosis, sa kanila muna. ‘Wag na muna nilang ipadala sa amin dahil ngayon po ay naka-focus kami sa COVID,” he said.
