Potential COVID-19 patients should consider entries in other Negros Occidental hospitals as the Corazon Locsin Montelibano Memorial Regional Hospital (CLMMRH) will limit COVID-19 admissions, according to CLMMRH Chief Dr. Julius Drilon [3]. This move is due to the increasing positivity rate in the city, which might trigger a significant impact on the hospital’s bed capacity. As of writing, the beds for coronavirus patients are already 93 percent utilized, while six of seven intensive care unit beds for COVID-19 patients are also occupied.
