COVID-19 Outbreak: AMDA Philippines' Activities 2

Publication date:2020-04-07
We have received a report of AMDA Philippines activity 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 transportations stopped their services. Thus, people had a limited access to the medical care, and some clinics are also closed. Therefore, many consultations has been related to their chronic conditions which is irrelevant to COVID19 symptoms.

On March 26th, Ministry of Health in the Philippines announced the following: “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 activity is ongoing and to be continued according to the situations. As of April 2nd, 2,633 confirmed COVID19 cases in the Philippines announced by the Ministry of Health in the Philippines.
