Health Secretary Francisco Duque III, with National Task Force Against COVID-19 Chief Implementer Carlito Galvez Jr., led the inauguration of the new quarantine site.

“We thank the Filinvest group of companies that has provided this temporary quarantine facility. This will help the national government ramp up our health system as we endeavor to manage the number of cases and eventually flatten the curve,” Duque said.
