TACLOBAN CITY – The Department of Health Eastern Visayas Center for Health Development (DOH-EVCHD) handed over four Temporary Treatment and Monitoring Facilities (TTMFs) to four local government units (LGUs) in Eastern Visayas on four separate occasions from January 26 to 28.

On January 28, Tacloban City received a Temporary Treatment and Monitoring Facility (TTMF) at Bypass Road Brgy. 91 Abucay, Tacloban City.
