MANILA, Philippines- Sinabi ni Philippine Red Cross (PRC) Chairman at Chief Executive Officer (CEO) Sen. Richard Gordon nitong Huwebes na “game-changer” umano ang saliva RT-PCR test sa pagtukoy ng coronavirus disease (COVID-19) sa bansa.

“The saliva RT-PCR test is a game-changer for our country. The reduced cost of testing gives way to test more people such as students, employees, factory workers, healthcare workers, and other essential workers,” aniya.

“With the saliva RT-PCR test, they can be tested weekly because it is faster, accurate, affordable, and non-invasive. Rest assured that PRC remains committed to its duty of finding ways to test more and keep Filipinos out of harm’s way,” dagdag pa ni Gordon.

Hinikayat naman ni Gordon ang publiko na regular na magpa-test sa gitna ng paglobo ng kaso ng COVID-19 sa bansa.

“We can test as many as 48,000 people a day so that students can go back to school and people can start working. The reduced cost and non-invasive process of the saliva test make it more possible for students and workers to be tested regularly,” giit ni Gordon.
