Philippines to perform 1,000 tests a day with the new testing kits

MANILA - Health Secretary Francisco Duque reported on Monday, that DOH can now run 1,000 tests a day with the recent arrival of additional screening kits for COVID-19.

"Dahil nga tumaas ang capacity, iyong testing kits dumami at nakakapag-1,000 [tests a day na], asahan natin tataas pa ang bilang ng ating COVID-positive cases," he told DZMM.

"Huwag po natin asahan na dahil nag-lockdown tayo ante mano, kaagad-agad e babagsak na ang kaso ng COVID," he added.

The Philippines as of Sunday confirmed 71 deaths or about a 5-percent fatality rate out of its total 1,418 cases of the disease.
