City works out purchase of PPEs for frontliners
by Aileen P. Refuerzo / PIO

The city government works out the procurement of personal protective equipment (PPEs) to supply the needs of hospital workers and ensure that they are protected while attending to the coronavirus disease-2019 (Covid-19) patients.

Mayor Benjamin Magalong and City Administrator Bonifacio dela Peña said the city is swamped with requests for PPEs like face masks, and gloves among other things from public and private hospitals.

Private hospitals expressed willingness to pay for the equipment as they have the necessary budget.

Their problem is the dearth in supply and they hoped that the city government can help them in this aspect, the city officials said.

The mayor said the city ordered 550,000 masks, 300 forehead thermometers and 15,000 gowns and booties but General Services Officer Eugene Buyucan admitted encountering difficulties in working out the purchases due to limited supply.

On weekend, the city gave two boxes of 3M face masks to the Triage and Radiology Office of the Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center and one box to Saint Louis University Hospital of the Sacred Heart.

The Filipino-Chinese community donated 2,500 pieces of masks making their total donation run up to 15,000 which were all given away to hospitals.

The group has also  donated P1.6 million worth of goods and cash to the city government to help provide the basic needs of indigent residents affected by the Enhanced Community Quarantine, adding it is willing to provide more assistance to those in need.
