MANILA, Philippines — Six out of 127 hospitals in Metro Manila were tagged under “critical” level in terms of bed capacity solely for COVID-19 patients, data from the Department of Health (DOH) as of Nov. 25 showed.

This figure is a decrease from 10 hospitals recorded as “critical” last Nov. 18, consisting of 129 hospitals.


Of the six hospitals under “critical” level in the new data, three have already reached 100 percent bed occupancy, namely:

  • Mary Chiles General Hospital Inc.,
  • Ospital ng Muntinlupa, and,
  • Philippine Children’s Medical Center

The DOH classifies occupancy levels for COVID-19 beds in health centers as either “critical,” “high risk,” “moderate” and “safe.”


Under the “critical” level, hospitals have already reached more than 85 percent of their bed occupancy for COVID-19 patients.

Hospitals are identified as “high risk” if its COVID-19 beds are occupied 70 to 85 percent.

Hospitals under “moderate” level have 60 to 70 percent COVID-19 bed occupancy, while those below 60 percent are classified under “safe” level.

The bed occupancy rate for the whole of Metro Manila remains at the “safe” zone with 35.8 percent, or 2,369  out of the 6,626 total beds being occupied.
