A quarantine room has been set up in Barangay Poblacion Pardo, Cebu City to attend to residents with possible symptoms of the novel coronavirus (2019-nCoV).

According to Barangay Captain Manolita Abarquez, this is in accordance with the resolution passed by Cebu City Councilor Dave Tumulak to put up isolation rooms in every barangay.

Two hospital beds are inside the room. Basic equipment such as gloves, N95 masks and surgical masks, thermometer, and goggles are also in place. 

"Ang atong mga taga health center didto, naa man tay mga doctors sa atong health center. Mao atong pa desisyonon kung gikinahanglan i-isolate usa siya temporary, atong i-isolate," Abarquez said.

(We have doctors in our health center. They will decide if the person needs to be isolated temporarily then, we will isolate him or her.)

The barangay will wait for an inspection team to make sure that all the things are in place before the quarantine room will be fully operational. -Report from Leleth Rumaguera, ABS-CBN News
