10 NEW isolation units added to Agbannawag Temporary Treatment and Monitoring Facility

Tabuk City, Kalinga – The Temporary Treatment and Monitoring Facility (TTMF) located at Agbannawag, Tabuk City can now accommodate more COVID-19 infected patients with the turn-over of additional 10 isolation units with 2 beds each on November 10, 2021.

Additionally, three more units were constructed - one for the nurse station, another as a laboratory, and a triage facility situated at Talaca checkpoint.

The construction of the 13 modular container units, a project implemented by the Department of Public Works and Highways-Lower Kalinga District Engineering Office (LKDEO), was made possible through the funding initiative of Congressman Allen Jesse Mangaoang.

District Engineer Ruby Uyam said the additional facility is part of their simple way of helping the community.

Uyam described the isolation units as “very convenient” for COVID-19 patients to stay in since each room is equipped with a bed, comfort room, air-conditioner, and television.

The Head of LKDEO disclosed that the facility was funded under the Bayanihan to Heal as One Act, with a total cost of P9 million.

Reginald Wacas, who represented Congressman Mangaoang in gracing the event, expressed gratitude to DPWH-Lower Kalinga DEO for successfully implementing the project.

The facility, he said, is of great help in preventing the spread of the virus from one patient to another.
