MABALACAT CITY, Pampanga — The government-owned Jose B. Lingad Memorial General Hospital (JBLMGH) in the City of San Fernando will no longer accept walk-in patients due to its rising number of COVID-19 patients with severe symptoms, the management announced Tuesday, August 10.

In its post on Facebook, the JBLMGH asked for the public’s understanding.
