[Central News Agency]The Wuhan pneumonia epidemic in the Philippines is severe. The Metro Manila hospital is almost full, and a bed is hard to find. The doctor described the hospital as “like a doomsday scene.” At this time, Presidential Spokesperson Luo Kui was able to be admitted to the hospital soon after contracting the epidemic, which raised questions.

The Philippines announced today that 11,429 new cases of Wuhan pneumonia (new coronavirus disease, COVID-19) have been confirmed and 148 people have died. The cumulative number of confirmed cases has reached 904,285, and 15,594 people have died.

Since the end of March, the number of confirmed cases of Wuhan pneumonia in the Philippines has risen sharply, with a surge of 100,000 cases in the past 10 days. Taiwanese in the Philippines have lamented that the epidemic has no end in sight.

With the increase in the number of infected people, it is hard to find a hospital bed in Metro Manila. Jaime Almora, president of the Philippine Hospital Association (PHA), told CNN Philippines on the 6th: “It’s like a doomsday scene in a movie. That’s the situation. The number of (patients) continues to rise. The hospital is overwhelmed.”

The Manila hospital in the hardest hit area was full, and it was reported that patients with breathing difficulties died of illness without waiting for a bed in the intensive care unit. OCTA, a Wuhan pneumonia research team at the University of the Philippines, pointed out that the death rate from the epidemic in Metro Manila has risen to 5.4% in the past two weeks, which is almost three times the death rate in March (1.82%).

With the spread of the epidemic, Harry Roque announced on the 10th that he was diagnosed with a second degree and had been admitted to the hospital for treatment, which caused the outside world to question whether he could use his privileges to quickly find a hospital bed.

In response, Luo Kui said at an online press conference in the ward on the 12th: “I think this is an unchristian issue.”

Luo Kui was interviewed by the news website Rappler afterwards and said that he was originally isolated at home. Because the blood oxygen saturation dropped to 90%, he decided to be admitted to the hospital.

Generally, the normal value of blood oxygen saturation should be higher than 95%. The Deputy Minister of Health of the Philippines Maria Rosario Vergeire once suggested that patients should be hospitalized when their blood oxygen saturation is below 90%.

However, Luo Kui’s speech still caused controversy. Netizen Leonard Javier tweeted: “Many medical staff and critically ill patients did not have the opportunity to be tested. Luo Kui did at least 35 tests. Many people died while waiting in the emergency room, in the tent (outside the hospital), or at home. , Luo Kui jumped into the Philippine General Hospital (PGH). Selfishness is contrary to Christianity.”

Gene Nisperos, a physician at the Philippine General Hospital, told the ABS-CBN News Channel: “The most conservatively speaking, this is disappointing. Even doctors, perhaps because we are hospital staff, can be hospitalized first; but even our family members. …Must also follow the rules (waiting for the bed).”
