LGU secures oxygen supply for Zamboanga City hospitals – Mayor Climaco


The Zamboanga City government has helped in securing medical oxygen amid the depleting supply in hospitals in the city, Mayor Beng Climaco said.

An ISO tank containing liquid oxygen arrived in the city from Cebu Saturday, September 25, to help augment supply, as Covid-19 cases continue to surge, she said.

Climaco led the city in thanking Coast Guard Station Central Cebu Acting Commander Alvin Dagalea for expediting the transport of medical oxygen and the Department of Health (DOH) for putting together the one hospital command that will facilitate a comprehensive and coordinated response to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Climaco, together with City Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Office and Local Inter-Agency Task Force Chief Implementer Dr. Elmeir Apolinario and City Health Officer Dr. Dulce Miravite, met with hospital administrators to discuss measures to address concerns related to medical oxygen supply in the city.
