Community-based testing service

On May 8, a total of 278 tests were conducted in the community-based testing centers and local government hospitals and by the QCESU.

Of the 278 tests, 9 were done in Quezon City General Hospital, 14 in Novaliches District Hospital, 9 in Rosario Maclang Bautista General Hospital, 3 at QC Experience, 20 at SB Park Novaliches, 56 at Asian Institute of Tourism, 13 at Old Balara Court, 18 at Esteban Abada Elementary School, 18 at Batasan National High School, and 118 by QCESU.
