Conglomerate ISOC Holdings Inc. has recently donated 7,500 rapid test kits to seven local government units in Metro Manila.

ISOC Holdings, founded and chaired by Michael C. Cosiquien, is the parent company of ISOC Land Inc., ISOC Infrastructure Inc. and ORCA Cold Chain Solutions.

Cosiquien took the initiative of sourcing the rapid test kits for Novel Coronavirus 2019 (COVID-19) in line with the Government’s goal of flattening the curve. Testing has been proven to help significantly by determining early the infection and targeting healthcare to positive patients.

“These donations to the city governments of Caloocan, Makati, Paranaque, Pasay, Pasig, Quezon City and Taguig embody the value of ‘Bayanihan’ – which is helping one another in times of need. We are one with the government in saving lives and stopping the spread of COVID-19. As a united nation, we will heal as one and get through this pandemic,” Cosiquien said.

Certified by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the SARS-Cov-2 Ab rapid test kit are produced by Wantai BioPharm. The said test kit can generate results in 15 minutes.
The donations were met with appreciation by the respective LGU representatives.

Pasay City Mayor Imelda “Emi” G. Calixto-Rubiano said, “We would like to thank the private sector for helping us in our fight against COVID-19. We cannot do it alone and the benevolent help of private companies such as ISOC Holdings is definitely a clear and impressive display of Bayanihan.”

Dr. Olga Z. Virtuoso, Parañaque City Health Officer, said the delivery of the rapid test kits is very timely as their initial supply of rapid test kits was already dwindling, adding that Parañaque was one of the first cities to use rapid test kits at the onset of the outbreak.

At the start of the Enhanced Community Quarantine, ISOC Holdings’ subsidiaries ISOC Land, ORCA Cold Chain Solutions and ISOC edotco Towers Ltd. also sent food supplies to the same LGUs.
