Paranaque City will launch its synchronized expanded community testing on July 28 at the barangay level in a bid to contain the increasing number of individuals affected with coronavirus disease (COVID-19).

Mayor Edwin Olivarez said the synchronized expanded community testing will be done in 16 barangays Monday to Friday from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

Olivarez said the synchronized expanded community testing in coordination with the City Health Office (CHO) will conduct  swab and anti-body rapid testing.

Each barangay will accommodate 900 patients who will undergo anti-body rapid testing and those who will test positive will immediately undergo confirmatory test through swabbing.

The CHO has recorded 2, 290 confirmed coronavirus cases with 849 active cases and 81 deaths.

“The synchronized expanded community testing is our way in battling the continued increase of COVID in the city and I am calling and appealing again to the city residents to submit themselves for testing,” Olivarez said.

Mar Jimenez, chief of the Public Information Office, said so far many of the city residents are receptive to the program and willing to undergo tests.
