PCR TESTThe number of tests performed here is PCR Tests only. Rapid Tests conducted by the local government are no longer included because the results of Rapid Tests are still required by Confirmatory tests.
SMART PROGRAMThe SMART or Systematic Mass Approach to Responsible Testing was launched in Taguig which includes barangay-based testing and drive-thru tresting to further expand the city's testing capacity.
