“Chairman Gordon is my hero for all the work he has done since the start of the pandemic.” These are the words said by Sen. Pia Cayetano as he quoted his brother Taguig Mayor Lino Cayetano during the Senate Session No. 25 last November 17,2021.
Sen. Dick Gordon, who is also the Chairman and CEO of the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) , quickly defended the humanitarian organization after remarks on failed tests in PRC Subic Molecular Laboratory were brought up. According to the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine in a letter, “The RITM found no evidence of contamination for the 48 cases tested by the PRC Subic Laboratory and the results were found to be valid and reliable.”
PRC, the leading organization for COVID-19 testing, recently opened its 14th molecular laboratory to increase the testing capacity of PRC. To date, PRC has conducted 4,955,248 tests, the country’s 21% of the national testing output.
” I would like to commend the Philippine Red Cross staff and volunteers for their dedication in battling COVID-19. The new molecular laboratory will hasten our covid-19 response,” Sen. Dick Gordon said.
PRC continues to aid the most vulnerable through the implementation of Senm Gordon’s initiatives to alleviate human suffering. PRC is all out in its vaccination program through the deployment of PRC Bakuna Buses and Bakuna Centers to support the LGUs nationwide.
