UP CHK opens annex as step-down iso facility for COVID-19 cases

In support of the government’s drive to curb the effect of the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, University of the Philippines opened the annex of the College of Human Kinetics Gym as a step-down isolation facility.

“Nakita namin ‘yung value and significance of serving the UP community. For as long as puro remote learning sa UP, we will support this,” said UP CHK dean and UAAP Board of Managing Directors member Kiko Diaz.

“Wala pa namang face-to-face classes, so we saw fit that one of the facilities be transformed to an isolation facility.”

The newly converted step-down facility, which was the training venue for the Lady Maroons Women’s Basketball Team and UP Pep, comes equipped with tents, mattresses, and bedding for the use of recovering COVID-19 patients and patients awaiting the result of their retest.

It also has shower and toilet amenities, water dispensers, and washing machines, along with hygiene kits.

The step-down facility is a tripartite initiative between UP CHK, Maynilad, and UP ACTasONE, which is headed by Mike Defensor.
