Angara wants more COVID-19 mega quarantine facilities in Cebu

Robie de Guzman   •   June 30, 2020

MANILA, Philippines – Senator Sonny Angara on Tuesday called for the establishment of more mega quarantine facilities in Central Visayas, especially in Cebu as it emerges as the new epicenter of the novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in the country.

“The Department of Health should step up its response in Cebu City because the only way that we can flatten the curve is if all areas of the country are able to control the spread of the disease,” Angara said in a statement.

As of June 28, 2020, Region 7 has breached the 8,000 mark on the total number of confirmed COVID-19 cases, with Cebu City accounting for 4,962 of these infections.

A total of 252 COVID-19 deaths have also been recorded, with 157 of these from Cebu City.

Cebu City is the only area in the country placed under enhanced community quarantine.

The Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Disease (IATF) earlier said it is now looking for possible sites to construct additional isolation or quarantine facilities in Cebu City.

Angara noted that a newly-constructed quarantine facility in the city, which can accommodate more than 300 patients, was opened on Monday, June 29.

The senator, a COVID-19 survivor, also called on more hospitals in Cebu City to consider using convalescent plasma therapy to treat severe cases of coronavirus disease.

Some hospitals in Metro Manila and Cebu undertook efforts to use convalescent plasma therapy and hybrid therapeutic plasma exchange as possible treatments for COVID-19 patients.

The hybrid therapeutic plasma exchange involves the removal of bad plasma from a patient and replacing these with good plasma from donors.

Angara’s wife also shared that she feels sad and pained for not being able to take care of her husband who is in quarantine, and admitted to breaking down amid the difficult situation.

“I do have moments of weakness where I break down and cry, because I miss him a lot and don’t know what I can do to help. But I choose to be strong and realized that prayer calmed my heart and made me believe Sonny was going to be okay,” she said.

Robie de Guzman   •   March 26, 2020

MANILA, Philippines – Senator Sonny Angara on Thursday confirmed he has tested positive for novel coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

“I regret to announce that today, March 26, I received my test result and it is positive for COVID-19,” Angara said in a statement.

He said he has been feeling some of the coronavirus symptoms like mild fever, cough, headaches and general weakness.

The lawmaker assured he has not been in contact with the public since he took a test for COVID-19 last March 16.

Angara on March 12 announced he has subjected himself under self-quarantine after a resource person who visited the Senate premises later tested positive for the virus.

“I ask for your prayers that together we are able to pull through this tremendous challenge,” the lawmaker said.

“Let us continue to support all efforts to fight the further spread of the virus. Let us support our frontliners on the streets, in the emergency rooms as they are key to the effort,” he added.

Angara is the third senator to contract the viral disease after Senators Aquilino “Koko” Pimentel III, and Juan Miguel Zubiri confirmed they have tested positive for COVID-19.
