MABALACAT CITY, Pampanga––All hospital beds and quarantine and isolation facilities for COVID-19 patients in Aurora province are fully occupied and could no longer accommodate other individuals who tested positive for COVID-19, an official said.

“Not only the quarantine and isolation facilities are full, but even the hospital, even the tents that we put up there for our patients are occupied. That is why we installed a dome tent there to prepare for the possible increase of patients,” he said.
