The advisory of St. Luke’s comes as Metro Manila reverts to enhanced community quarantine (ECQ) from August 6-20 in the face of a COVID-19 Delta variant scare.

On August 7, the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) also announced that its ICU for COVID-19 patients has reached full capacity.

To date, the Department of Health reported the detection of 450 cases of the more transmissible Delta variant of COVID-19 in the country.
