The city government of Taguig on Friday inaugurated the city’s COVID-19 Lakeshore Mega Quarantine Facility, which has 500 beds, a molecular laboratory and a national testing facility for COVID-19.

The molecular laboratory is seen to increase the city’s capacity to administer tests and hopefully reach the city’s target of 100,000 RT-PCR tests or at least 10 percent of Taguig’s population by the end of the year.

At least 70 beds at the quarantine facility was opened Friday, with the rest of the units available in the coming weeks.

The rooms, which are constructed from container vans, are spread across the sprawling property adjacent to the Laguna lake to give patients enough space to roam and exercise while on quarantine. 

Catering to patients of all ages, the facility designated rooms for young patients complete with toys, art materials and communication gadgets.
