The Calapan City government has tapped the help of the Philippine Red Cross so it could use the latter’s molecular laboratory in Batangas City to conduct swab testing for Calapenos.

According to the city government, the swabbing of the specimen will be done in Calapan City by the City Health and Sanitation Department while the examination of the specimen will be done in Batangas City.

“Upang matiyak ang regular na testing ng mga suspected at probable Covid-19 cases, nakipag-ugnayan tayo sa Philippine Red Cross para magamit ang kanilang molecular laboratory sa Batangas City sa examination ng mga specimen na kinuha sa mga pasyente,” Mayor Arnan Panaligan said.

“Ang swabbing ay gagawin dito sa ating lungsod ng ating City Health staff at dadalhin sa Batangas City para sa examination. Inaasahan na magiging mabilis ang proseso at malalaman sa loob ng dalawa hanggang tatlong araw ang resulta,” he added.

tnitial deposit of P1 million out of the P5 million allocation was already paid to the PRC.

“Kanina ay kinuha na ng City Health staff ang mga test kits mula sa Red Cross sa Batangas City,” said the Panaligan.
