The local government unit (LGU) said that the laboratory is fitted with state-of-the-art testing equipment and is operated by highly-trained individuals to ensure that all RT-PCR tests that will be done in the facility are safe and accurate. It added that the primary goal of the facility is to increase the speed of RT-PCR testing and to help the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) in conducting the tests.

Abalos said the facility is also compliant with the specific requirements mandated by the Department of Health (DOH) in the creation of molecular laboratories and similar facilities.

The city government explained that as of now, the laboratory is conducting sample tests for the facility’s accreditation and certification by the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM) and Department of Health (DOH). O

As of Jan. 19, the city has recorded 2,170 active COVID-19 cases, 27,477 recoveries, and 580 deaths.
