Treatment czar Usec Leopoldo Vega on One Hospital Command: We want to do coordinated care in hospitals in Metro Manila and different regions
Treatment czar Vega: The surge we have been experiencing burdened the hospitals and the One Hospital Command Center
Treatment czar Vega on One Hospital Command: When you call a hotline, it would go to a call center agent. But when you try to look for a hospital, sometimes we can't locate hospitals within the metropolis that will admit a patient
Treatment czar Vega on One Hospital Command: We also try to refer patients to an isolation facility by coordinating with LGUs or different places
Treatment czar Vega on One Hospital Command: Dashboard used by call center agents use real-time numbers on the capacity of public and private hospitals
Treatment czar Vega says they refer COVID-19 patients to hospitals in Central Luzon and Calabarzon when healthcare facilities in Metro Manila are occupied
Treatment czar Vega: We noticed that a lot of mild cases were admitted in hospitals but they could have been managed in isolation facilities
Treatment czar Vega says the government may have to tighten restrictions if COVID cases don't go down this week
Treatment czar Vega notes some cities in Metro Manila have hit the high-risk level in terms of bed occupancy for COVID-19 patients, meaning 70-80% of the total beds for COVID-19 patients are occupied
Treatment czar Vega: Other hospitals are under the critical level, which means their COVID-19 bed occupancy rates have reached over 85%
San Juan City yesterday began the simultaneous vaccination of healthcare workers, senior citizens, and those with comorbidities.

Mayor @franciszamora30 says they already vaccinated 3,949 residents, 370 of whom were senior citizens, 3,375 were healthcare workers in the city
@franciszamora30 San Juan Mayor @franciszamora30 on ECQ: I feel that one week maybe too short. The ECQ last year would tell us that the numbers would not go down that fast
@franciszamora30 San Juan Mayor @franciszamora30 on ECQ: The Metro manila mayors would assess by Saturday and if we see that the numbers are dropping and the interventions are working, another week of ECQ would help us. If we open up by April 5, what we've done in a week would be wasted
@franciszamora30 San Juan Mayor @franciszamora30 says they aim to finish distributing aid to their residents by Thursday
@franciszamora30 San Juan Mayor @franciszamora30 says there will be no inoculations on Good Friday and possibly on Easter Sunday so the vaccination teams could rest

The group Filipino Nurses United sees the implementation of the enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) as an added cause of suffering for the health workers and the Filipinos in general amid the surge COVID-19 cases | @TristanNodalo
@TristanNodalo Filipino Nurses United: A repeat of hard lockdown or ECQ, without clear coordinated plans for the health workers and assurance of economic assistance and aid for the marginalized sectors who would again be displaced is headed for another failure | @TristanNodalo
@TristanNodalo Nurses group: The nurse to patient ratio in COVID-19 wards should be 1:3 for moderate to severe patients and 1:1 for critical care. But in reality 1 nurse handles an average of 12 severe cases and in intensive care unit 1 nurse takes care of 2-3 patients | @TristanNodalo

Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship Joey Concepcion: Pharma companies will not sell to us if there is no indemnification. The private sector cannot form the indemnification. That's why we formed this tripartite agreement.
Concepcion: The gov't did not ask us for vaccine donation. We're paying for the logistics and handling costs for the vaccines that the private sector will procured.
