The transformation of Philippine Arena complex in Bulacan province into a We Heal As One Center is now 70 percent complete, two days before the April 27 target.
The Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) has installed electric supply to the three mega tents in preparation for the upcoming operation of the quarantine facilities.
The tents are converted into health facilities for isolation and treatment of about 300 Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) patients.
DPWH sought the assistance of electric distribution company Meralco in providing electricity in the mega tents which are being powered by generator set.
DPWH has also requested free wi-fi access from PLDT and Smart, water supply from Maynilad and free pass at NLEX toll road leading to Ciudad De Victoria exit.
The completion of all cubicles, nurse stations, sanitizing chambers and test booths is projected on April 27 for turn-over to the Department of Health.
DPWH Secretary Mark Villar has earlier instructed his regional office in Central Luzon headed by Director Roseller Tolentino to intensify the monitoring of works for the repurposing of Ciudad de Victoria complex into a quarantine facility for patients and temporary housing for health workers.
