Patients who tested positive for coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) can now be admitted to the presidential yacht, BRP Ang Pangulo, the Philippine Navy said Sunday (April 12).

In a statement, the Navy said the ship can accommodate a total of 28 patients with five medical personnel.

Three exclusive compartments were prepared by Navy personnel for the patients with temporary division in place observing 3-meter distance between them. Patients and medical staff are given different access points.

The crew of BRP Ang Pangulo have been given personal protective equipment and they have also undergone antibody tests. All entry points from the crew’s billeting area and other compartments from the temporary medical facility and patient rooms were already sealed off.

The Navy said remodelling of the ship began 48 hours after Duterte ordered its use as a quarantine facility for COVID-19 patients.
