Recently, in a Facebook post of Mayor Aguinaldo, he expresses his resentment towards San Pedro Calungsod Medical Center (SPCMC) in Kawit. He stated that he doesn’t believe the hospital management’s reason that they refused the patient because they already reached their maximum capacity.

According to his post, the Department of Health (DOH) already ordered all hospitals to prepare and reserve rooms for upcoming COVID-19 patients. It comes with President Duterte’s Public Health Emergency announcement in the country.

Mayor Aguinaldo questioned the honesty of the private hospital management. He also stated that the patient was told by the hospital management that they need confirmation from the SPCMC President before the admission.

Mayor Cavite was disappointed that a hospital built in his municipality was not cooperating with the government. He also shared that he went personally to the hospital to plead to the management to accept the COVID-19 patient, but still fail to convince the hospital.

He urges residents of Kawit to immediately report if any hospital refusing admission of suspected coronavirus patients. Someone who will be liable for the incident should face charges accordingly.
