New Covid-19 test system presented

ALABEL, Sarangani (December 14, 2020) – (From left) Federico Yadao, Sarangani provincial health office-medical technologist, and Dr. Arvin Alejandro, provincial health officer, attend the Zoom meeting on the presentation of a new Covid-19 test system at the Provincial Department of Health Office and Integrated Provincial Health Office (PDOHO-PHO) building on December 11. The meeting was done for the integration of Covid-19 test kits, machines and methodology in the province. Alejandro said the meeting was a "help" in clarifying the existing test that is being used by the province. Part of the presented system during the meeting is the “Health Visa” which according to Alejandro is “very useful to screen people who are coming in and out of the province.” It was discussed that there are several establishments that are already using the said system like the airport going to Boracay in Aklan Province. Since there are reported cases of presenting fake medical certificates, Alejandro said that one advantage of adopting the system is the profound screening for the entering individuals. “Through the presented system,” Alejandro said, “upon arriving ng individuals, aside from the test, if okay yung result, meron agad issuance ng health visa that can be used throughout the checkpoints na dadaanan nila.” However, the presented system is still off for a consultative meeting together with Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon, the seven mayors and all the municipal health officers.
