Patients at the Philippine General Hospital are evacuated after a fire broke past midnight in the government-run facility amid the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) outbreak in Manila, Sunday. Around 500 patients were evacuated, with a number transferred to several hospitals in Manila after the fire. UP-PGH appealed for assistance particularly for industrial fans, oxygen tanks, water, food and face masks.
