Since the COVID-19 outbreak swept over the country, the health care workers of the UP Philippine General Hospital, one of the country’s COVID-19 referral centers, have been dealing with an unprecedented crisis and working round-the-clock to treat patients with COVID-19. The UP-PGH’s COVID Crisis Team now shares the five lessons they have learned over the past six months of battling against the viral pandemic.

The COVID-19 pandemic poses a threat not just to people’s physical health, but perhaps more insidiously, to their mental, emotional and psychological health as well. What the impacts of the pandemic are on our psychosocial well-being and how we can help one another cope will be the subject of the 14th installment in the UP Webinar Series “STOP COVID DEATHS: Clinical Management Updates”, which is scheduled on July 24, Friday, at 12 n.n.
