RMS, Ninoy Aquino Stadium conversion to medical facility almost complete


Rizal Memorial Stadium is set to open its doors for novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) patients this week.

Cabinet Secretary Karlo Nograles said in the Inter-Agency Task Force briefing Monday that the venue temporarily converted into a medical facility — which has a capacity for 200 beds — will open either Monday or Tuesday.

“COVID-19 chief implementor, Secretary Carlito Galvez Jr., reports that Rizal Stadium will be ready by this week — actually very early this week, kung hindi today, tomorrow — with a capacity for 200 beds,” he said.

Nograles also reported that the government buildings in New Clark City in Tarlac, which had been utilized before as a temporary quarantine facility for repatriated seafarers, have been converted into a 1,000-bed hospital.

“Government buildings in New Clark City have already been refurbished and have been converted into a 1,000-bed hospital,” he said.

The World Trade Center in Pasay City is also among the major venues being converted to house COVID-19 patients, and it will have 500 beds as well as living quarters for the health workers once completed, Nograles said.

“The World Trade Center, once completed, will be able to house 500 beds and also have living quarters for heath workers,” he said.

Meanwhile, the Bases Conversion and Development Authority on Monday posted on its official Facebook page that the Ninoy Aquino Stadium in the Rizal Memorial Sports Complex will be ready to accept patients this week.COVID-19-action-Ninoy-Aquino-Stadium-2-300x200 RMS, Ninoy Aquino Stadium conversion to medical facility almost complete News  - philippine sports news

“This instant medical facility will house 112 beds and will be manned by our frontliners, the AFP Medical Corps.”
