CHAIRMAN DICK GORDON URGE THE PUBLIC TO GET TESTED REGULARLY FOR COVID-19

The Philippine Red Cross (PRC) Chairman and CEO Sen. Dick Gordon urged the public to get tested regularly to prevent transmission of COVID-19 after a Social Weather Stations (SWS) survey showed that 91% of Filipinos are bothered that they might transmit or be affected by COVID-19.

As the holiday season is just around the corner, PRC strengthens its testing by introducing the saliva RT-PCR test home service through a partnership with Angkas. PRC priced its home service for PHP 700 for same-day booking and PHP 400 for next-day booking. PRC, recently lowered its price for saliva RT-PCR test from PHP 2,000 to PHP 1,500. 

“I am urging everyone to get tested regularly to prevent transmission. Dahil thru testing lamang natin malalaman kung tayo ay positive o hindi. Dahil sa binaba na natin ang presyo ng testing at mayroon ng home service saliva RT-PCR test ay magiging mas ligtas na ang pagpapatest. This will be beneficial for senior citizens, persons with disabilities, pregnant women, at yung mga may comorbidities,” PRC Chairman and CEO Sen. Dick Gordon said.

PRC continues its fight against COVID-19, as the humanitarian organization strengthens its testing and vaccination efforts to fight the invisible enemy. 

“Kapag tayo ay nagbakauna at nag patest, ay mas mapapabilis natin ang pag balik sa trabaho, makakabalik ang mga bata sa eskwelahan, at mabubuksan ulit natin ang ating ekonomiya,” Gordon added.
