Read : MJH Reminds the Public to Follow Health ProtocolsJune 3, 2020
June 1, 2020, Metro Manila is transitioning to a General Community Quarantine (GCQ) status as announced by President Rodrigo Duterte. As the government eases restrictions across the country, Mary Johnston Hospital (MJH) reminds the public to be vigilant and to strictly follow health protocols against the coronavirus when they start going out of their respective houses and resume their daily work routine.
Always wear a mask, wash your hands frequently, avoid touching your face, maintain social distancing, and avoid crowded areas whenever possible. Remember, there is no penalty for employing overreaction on our hygiene but also be sensitive enough for others. With the number of cases rising and the absence of a vaccine, nothing remains certain. Let us continue working together against this battle and save lives.
The Department of Health (DOH) states that as of May 31, 2020, the country has a total of 18,086 confirmed cases of COVID-19, with total recoveries of 3,909 (21.61%) and total deaths of 957 (5.29%). The City of Manila, as of May 30, 2020, has a total of 1386 confirmed cases of infections. Of these numbers, 882 were classified as active cases, 403 recovered, and a total of 101 deaths. The City registered 1,605 suspect cases. The 1st District of Tondo where MJH is located has the highest number of COVID-19 in the city with a total of 353 confirmed cases (245 active cases, 85 recovered and 23 death). One out of four Manila residents as suspect cases are living in Tondo District 1 – 421 (26.23%) of the total suspect cases in the City of Manila. The battle against the virus has still a long way to go until a vaccine is finally discovered.
From March 16 to May 31, 2020, MJH Emergency Room was able to examine a total of 943 patients for possible coronavirus infection. Of these numbers, 541 patients were diagnosed as SUSPECT CASES and 347 patients were diagnosed as PROBABLE CASES. A total of 55 patients were identified as a CONFIRMED or laboratory-confirmed case of COVID-19.
The hospital’s battle against the virus is not letting up. The risks of infections remain high and while we are holding out, fatigue is emerging among our health workers. MJH draws strength from your support and continuous prayers to continue this battle against COVID 19. On behalf of the management, its 200 front line workers, and the Board of Trustees, MJH would like to express its deepest appreciation for your support and prayers. MJH hopes that you will remain with us in this fight. This week, we would like to express our gratitude to the following donors:
