Phase 2 of the project will commence on April 8, once final advice from the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF) for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases and the Department of Health is given. Phase 2 will provide an additional 108 beds for patients at the RMSC, and is expected to be completed by the end of next week. 
 
Bloomberry Resorts said in a statement on Wednesday that it’s “immensely proud to be able to support affiliate construction firm Prime Metro BMD Corp. and contribute to “bayanihan” in finding ways to fight the COVID-19 pandemic.”
