Mayor Francisco ‘Isko Moreno’ Domagoso on free mass testing: “Totoo pala na ang tao, gusto niyang magpa-test, pero wala siyang access. Second problem is economic, walang pera, hindi kumita. Ngayon nagkaroon ng libre, dumagsa.”
Both Manila and non-Manila residents aboard four, three and two-wheeled vehicles endured the long line for the much needed health procedure to check whether they contracted the virus or not for one’s “peace of mind” and obtain a health certificate for ease of travel to be able to go back to their hometowns.
They only brought a valid identification card (ID) to get tested. In just an hour after the drive-thru center opened at about 10:30 a.m., at least 120 individuals were already tested, the Manila public information office (PIO) said.
The testing center at the Quirino Grandstand is the second drive-thru facility in the city of Manila. The first one is in front the Andres Bonifacio Monument near the Manila City Hall, which was opened to the public Wednesday.
Domagoso assured the public that the city government will continue to offer the service as long as it can.
