The Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) is enjoining all Metro Manila local government units (LGUs) to endorse mild and asymptomatic patients to Oplan Kalinga hotels and quarantine facilities if their local isolation facilities are already full since there are 4,000 beds now available due to the increase in discharges or recoveries in the past weeks.
DILG Secretary Eduardo M. Año said that this is compliance with IATF Resolution No. 74 where all confirmed mild and asymptomatic COVID-19 patients are now required to isolate in government-approved facilities, except those who are vulnerable or have comorbidities as certified by a local health officer.
Dalawampu’t isang Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) na laboratoryong pinatatakbo ng mga local government units ang binuksan na at tumutugon sa mga pangangailangan ng kanilang mga nasasakupan at pinabubuti ang pambansang kakayahan para magsuri ng COVID-19.
Masayang tinanggap ni Department of the Interior and Local Government (DILG) Secretary Eduardo M. Año ang balitang ito at binati ang mga local chief executives na nasa lilkod nito. “Noon, Marikina lamang ang may RT-PCR laboratory. Ngayon mayroon na tayong 21 sa buong bansa at marami pang susunod. "Ipinagmamalaki ko ang mga LGUs na pumasa sa mahigpit na licensing procedure ng DOH,” ani Año.
Twenty-one (21) Reverse Transcription-Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) laboratories run by local government units (LGUs) are now operational and serving the needs of their constituents significantly helping improve the country’s overall testing capacity for COVID-19.

Año welcomed this development and congratulated the local chief executives for this significant achievement. “Before we only had Marikina City as has having its own LGU-run RT-PCR laboratory. Now we have 21 all over the country and more are on the pipeline. I’m proud of these LGUs for passing the stringent DOH licensing procedure,” he...
