Governor Roel Ragay Degamo, Vice Governor Mark Macias, SP Board Member Petit Baldado, Dumaguete City Mayor Felipe Remollo and several provincial government officials and employees led the inauguration and turnover of the NOPH Isolation Facility for COVID and other infectious diseases.
Local officials and health workers lauded this significant development in the province and a boon in the fight against COVID-19.
The facility contains 34 negative pressure rooms, donning and doffing rooms, built-in piping for oxygen, a laboratory, a morgue, and a generator set in case of power interruptions.
The P 46 million fund alloted for this project is part of the P 98 million Bayanihan Grant for Negros Oriental from the National Government.
Construction of the facility was done by PhilSouth who finished the project in 60 days.
