The Ospital ng Tondo (OsTon) has resumed regular operations after it was closed down for nearly two weeks after a number of medical frontliners contracted COVID-19.

City Information Officer Julius Leonen said OsTon officially reopened on May 25.

The hospital was closed from May 11 to 24 for terminal cleaning, disinfection, pest control and rearrangement of the facility for COVID-19-related operations.

Manila Mayor Isko Moreno earlier said that the closure would allow frontliners who might have contracted COVID-19 to be placed under quarantine and recover.

According to OsTon Director Dr. Myrna Paloma, 13 medical frontliners have contracted COVID-19 and are now on quarantine. Three employees have recovered from the illness.
