Parañaque City received 2,000 coronavirus testing kits from a group of Korean businessmen recently to help the city’s response against the dreaded disease.  

According to Dr. Jefferson R. Pagsisihan, Director of Ospital ng Parañaque (OSPAR) 1&2, the test kits donated by the Korean businessmen Thursday (July 2) consist of 1,000 units of antigen and 1,000 antibody test kits.

Pagsisihan said the testing kits that were manufactured by SD Biosensor Headquarters in Suwon, South Korea have been approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for use.

He said the testing kits are very useful in detecting whether an individual is positive from the virus or has an ongoing infection.

The OSPAR director explained that the antigen test kits will detect the COVID-19 virus while the antibody will determine the body’s attempt to fight the virus.

Pagsisihan said the results can be released in less than 30-minutes so the doctors can easily decide the plan of management for the patients.

Mayor Edwin Olivarez said the donation of the Korean businessmen is a big help because they can immediately isolate persons who will tested positive for the virus.

Parañaque has 1178 confirmed cases with 323 active cases and 61 deaths.

Olivarez said Barangay BF Homes with 5 areas placed under calibrated lockdown since July 3 and will end Sunday midnight still has the most number of individuals infected by the virus at 56
