/ 03:57 PM September 25, 2020

MANILA, Philippines — Thirty-four of 136 hospitals in the National Capital Region (NCR) were placed under the “danger” level in terms of bed capacity solely for new coronavirus disease patients, data from the Department of Health (DOH) has shown.

The “danger” category means that beds for COVID-19 patients in these hospitals have more than 70 percent occupancy, and are vulnerable to being full in case of a surge in SARS-CoV-2 transmission in their respective areas.

Of these 34 hospitals, 13 have already reached 100 percent bed occupancy, according to DOH. Among these hospitals are A. Zarate Hospital, Allied Care Experts (Ace) Medical Center Valenzuela Inc., Asian Hospital, Bernardino General Hospital I, Mary Chiles General Hospital Inc., National Center for Mental Health, Rosario Maclang Bautista Hospital, Taguig-Pateros District Hospital, University of Santo Tomas Hospital,  Valenzuela City Emergency Hospital, and Victoriano Luna Medical Center.

DOH’s latest figure is four hospitals less than its September 16 data of Metro Manila hospitals placed under the “danger” level. But the September 16 statistics included only 130 NCR hospitals.

INQUIRER.net analyzed the most recent data – dated September 23, 2020 available on the DOH COVID-19 tracker for bed capacity. The data aims to indicate how well prepared are the COVID-19 hospitals in facing a possible rush in COVID-19 infections. But only hospitals in Metro Manila that have beds exclusively allocated for COVID-19 patients were included in this story.

Also, DOH’s data shows that Metro Manila’s hospital bed capacity is at the “warning” level since 54.4 percent of the 6,555 beds for COVID-19 patients in the region are occupied.

A “warning” level means these hospitals have a 30 to 70 percent utilization rate.

On the contrary, hospitals are considered in the “safe” level if bed occupancy is less than 30 percent.

Below is the breakdown of hospitals and its bed utilization rates based on the DOH COVID-19 tracker for bed capacity as of September 23, 2020:
