“This hemodialysis center will cater solely for patients with kidney problems who are tested positive of the coronavirus virus. Dito, ang mga pasyenteng positibo sa Covid virus ay tatangapin at hindi tatanggihan na gaya ng ginagawa ng ibang mga hospital na dala na rin ng takot na magkaroon ng Covid sa kanilang mga pasilidad,” Regional Director Eduardo C. Janairo

Kaya walang dahilan upang hindi makapagpagamot ang mga pasyenteng nangangailangan ng dialysis treatment.”He also added that DOH-CALABARZON will be assisting in logistics augmentation when needed including personal protective equipment.|-BNN
