“To hold out with our ongoing battle against COVID-19, the Provincial Government of Albay procured COVID19 Rapid Test Kits, surgical masks and surgical gloves for use in the screening and monitoring of Covid-19 cases in Albay,” the provincial Capitol said.

The newly acquired supplies were handed over to the Albay Provincial Health Office last Tuesday, May 19 at the Governor’s Guesthouse.

Each bag of seed weighs 20 kilos. The PGA is coordinating with PhilRice for the next schedule of distribution to the LGUs,” said the Capitol.
