Cebu archdiocese turns IEC center into Covid-19 care facility

The Archdiocese of Cebu has opened its International Eucharistic Congress (IEC) center, a facility with a floor area of about 25, 754 square meters, for people showing symptoms of coronavirus.

The IEC Convention Center Cebu (IC3), formerly known as the IEC Pavillon, will be among the two “first response areas” set up to serve as Covid-19 care and quarantine facilities.

The other area is the Sacred Heart School — Ateneo de Cebu, formerly known as SHS School for Boys, said CBCP News in a report.

The initiative was part of a concerted effort called “Bayanihan Cebu Center” (BCC) to serve mildly to moderately symptomatic patients.

The IC3 was the venue of the 51st IEC that brought in over 10,000 participants from all over the world in 2016.
