A mother wearing a mask nestles her newborn premature babies inside the maternity ward of the government-run Dr. Jose Fabella Memorial Hospital in Manila, Philippines, September 18, 2020. Diana Cajipe, an obstetrician-gynaecologist who has spent 13 years at the hospital, says a big concern is the possibility that patients did not disclose symptoms of the coronavirus because of the fear of not being admitted.

"I think that poses a great risk not only to us healthcare workers but to other patients as well," said Cajipe. REUTERS/Eloisa Lopez

The Philippines has recorded 279,526 coronavirus infections, the highest number in Southeast Asia with most cases being recorded in Manila, while 4,830 people have died.

Despite the pressures, Cajipe said health workers in the hospital were coping.

"I'm just glad I'm working with people in this institution who are resilient enough to stay by me during this pandemic," she said. "Exhaustion and fear have to be put aside, because our patients need us."
