City Health Officer Dr. Maria Sarah B. Talla receives, on behalf of Mayor Felipe Antonio Remollo, some 300 Rapid Diagnostic Test kits from the Energy Development Corporation represented by Julius L. Teves, yesterday, as the company’s contribution to the ongoing campaign to manage the COVID-19 pandemic.
Dr. Talla expresses gratitude to EDC for the donated RDT kits that will be utilized in the continuing surveillance of returning residents by the City’s Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases.
While the City Government has already procured about 2, 000 RTD kits, the donation from EDC is a welcome addition to the supply of the local health department and increases its capacity to test additional PUMs under surveillance.
