Malacanang debunked ‘fake news’ that hospitals in the Philippines are running out of beds.

“Nililinaw po namin na yung mga kumakalat na fake news na ubos na daw po ang mga hospital beds ng ating mga hospital, hindi po yan totoo,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said. 

He added that there is an existing mandatory pursuant to administrative order that 30 percent of all bed capacity is reserved for Covid-19 patients.  

“Hindi pa po nabebreach itong 30 percent na ito. kasi marami po, lalong-lalo na yung mga pribadong opsital, less than 30 percent ang kanilang ina-allot dahil doon sa tinatawag na absorptive capacity.  [H]indi pa po puno yung 30% capacity ng lahat ng hospital beds na dedicated sa COVID pero itong mga hospital beds na ito ay bukod pa dun sa tinatawag nating critical care na ang sabi nga kanina as of July 5 ay 63% pa lamang po or nasa moderate risk,” he added responding to the fake news that are making the rounds online.
