Makati Med, St. Luke's QC and Global City now at full capacity for COVID-19

Three major hospitals in Metro Manila said Monday they have reached full capacity for COVID-19 patients.

Makati Medical Center, St. Luke's Medical Center- Quezon City and St. Luke's Medical Center Global City made the announcement on their respective social media accounts.

The steady and sometimes sharp rise in COVID-19 cases has been putting a strain on Metro Manila hospitals.

Earlier, the Philippine General Hospital said it already stopped accommodating severe and critical COVID-19 cases for now as its intensive care unit is almost fully occupied.

An official from the San Lazaro Hospital in Manila said its COVID-19 ward was also almost full.

The Department of Health last week said at least 11 hospitals in Metro Manila reported 100 percent utilization rate of their ICU beds for COVID-19 patients.
