Due to COVID-19, the City Government of Davao released Executive Order No. 20 (2020) last March 23. In Section 1 no. 13, it states that all private hospitals located in Davao City should not accept Persons Under Investigation (PUI) and COVID-19 patients. Since Malta Medical Center is a private hospital, we must follow this protocol. PUIs who come to our hospital will immediately be advised to be transferred to public hospitals. Thus, we can say that as of the moment, Malta Medical Center does not house the aforementioned patients.
