  • Following the Enhanced Comprehensive Quarantine order of President Rodrigo Duterte, the government takes further action in preventing the spread of COVID-19 in the country. Local Government Units are imposing strict quarantine measures such as curfew hours and implementation of social distancing in public places like supermarkets and public markets, and more.

    Among these actions are establishing testing centers for persons under investigation (PUI) or those people who are more vulnerable to the symptoms of the COVID-19. To fasten the testing of PUIs, the government allocated more than one testing laboratory.
