Covid-19 has recently hampered operations at the National Center for Mental Health (NCMH). This requires immediate action in reporting, contact tracing and monitoring cases. The CFI immediately helped to develop and deploy a tool to assist the NCMH in tracking the disease among its staff and within their grounds.
We used two methods to model the disease burden against healthcare capacity in the region (Panay + Guimaras) as well as in the province (Iloilo). Release from a 30-day quarantine may cause a surge in Covid-19 infections which will quickly overwhelm our healthcare capacity. Additional actions and preparations are recommended to augment our effective healthcare capacity in terms of hospital beds and available healthcare workers, alongside enhanced testing, contact tracing, monitoring etc.
