With existing IATF guidelines and as provided in the DOH Surge Capacity Plan requiring public hospitals to prepare at least 30% bed capacity for COVID and 20% bed capacity for private hospitals at 8 and 15 beds respectively, the total bed capacity across all hospitals and facilities in Isabela City will be at 321 beds total.
Ligtas Covid TTMF 2 is a DPWH DEO project funded thru the initiative of Deputy Speaker Mujiv S. Hataman and Mayor Sitti Djalia A Turabin-Hataman.
