COVID-19 Outbreak: AMDA Philippines' Activities 2

Publication date:2020-04-07
We received a report of AMDA Philippines' activities from March 23rd to 27th. AMDA Philippines has been offering free online medical consultations jointly with Global Health Pharmacy Network, Brokenshire College Pharmacy Program, and medical students and clerks as volunteers from AMSA University of Perpetual Help Jonelta Foundation School of Medicine since March 23rd.

After the Philippine government imposed enhanced community quarantine until April 13th in Luzon and then eventually in Cebu, all public transportation services were stopped. Thus, people had a limited access to medical care, along with closures of some clinics. The free online consultation services were to fulfill the needs of those who could not seek medical help elsewhere.

On March 26th, Ministry of Health in the Philippines announced the following statement: “To Alleviate surge and minimize risks posed by unnecessary traffic in hospitals and enable effective community quarantine, the DOH recognizes the role of telemedicine, particularly primary care teleconsultation.” AMDA Philippines' activities are ongoing and to be continued according to the situations. As of April 2nd,  Ministry of Health in the Philippines.has announced 2,633 confirmed COVID-19 cases in the nation.
