Philippine Red Cross (PRC) Chairman and CEO Sen. Dick Gordon said that the humanitarian organization is preparing its Emergency Field Hospital and medical tents due to the threat of Omicron Variant.  

At the height of COVID-19 Surge last April 2021, PRC opened a 100-bed capacity Emergency Field Hospital at the Lung Center of Philippines and medical tents in National Kidney Transplant Institute to serve as an emergency ward extension to cater to COVID-19 positive patients. To date, PRC has catered more than 8,744 patients for its covid-19 response.

“Dapat lagi tayong handa. Kaya ipinapaalala ko ang 4Ps. We must predict, plan, prepare and practice. Kahit na wala pa ang omicron variant sa ating bansa, inihahanda na natin ang ating emergency tents kung sakaling tumaas ang kaso ng COVID-19. Nagawa na natin ito noon at patuloy natin gagawin upang makatulong tayo sa most vulnerable at wala nang mamamatay sa labas ng ospital,” Sen. Dick Gordon said.

Currently, PRC has 45 medical tents deployed in 32 hospitals to help mild to moderate COVID-19 cases. PRC Chairman Gordon vows to continue its operation as long as people need additional healthcare facilities.
