Kanlungang Palma sa Panahon ng Pandemya (KaPPP) or Kanlungang Palma, the community isolation unit for the UP Diliman (UPD) community, is now open following the Department of Health’s (DOH) approval after passing its second DOH inspection on May 13.
KaPPP will be a temporary isolation unit to suspect and probable COVID-19 cases with mild symptoms and those who cannot be quarantined at home, while waiting for the results of their swab tests. Only one patient can be accommodated per room; thus, the facility can only admit 26 patients at most, a far cry from what was initially envisioned to be a 50-bed isolation unit.
The facility will only admit patients between 18 and 60 years old, with no co-morbidities such as uncontrolled hypertension or diabetes or immunosuppressed conditions. Pregnant patients will not be admitted. KaPPP will not entertain walk-ins. Admission is from Monday to Sunday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Referring barangays or hospitals must first call the UP Health Service (UPHS) ER at 8981-8500 local 111 for initial screening and instructions.
