This was due to the great number of respondents from the hospitals (MMMH&MC and ITRMC).
As shown in table 1, the majority of the health researches were conducted in hospitals, particularly the MMMH&MC and ITRMC. Only a limited number (less than 20%) of the health researches came from the academic institutions.
This is particularly true in the MMMH&MC and ITRMC. Among the researchers who reported a research cost, 59 (23.8%) claimed to have expenditures amounting to PhP10,000-PhP 20,000.
The 20th fatality, Nelson Cabuenas, died while undergoing treatment at the ITRMC.
Romulo Sapitula, director of the Ilocos regional police, said the passengers of the jeepney were taken to the ITRMC.
