The Philippines logged its first two cases of the Centaurus subvariant of Omicron this August, which is known as highly transmissible. With rising cases, yet again, in the National Capital Region, keeping our health status in check is first and foremost a priority.
According to independent pandemic mnitor Octa Research Group’s report late in July, weekly cases of COVID-19 in Metro Manila is 25% higher than the average of around 800 per day early in the same month. Even Visayas and Mindanao have an increasing positivity rate from “high” to “very high” as the positivity rate of some of the provinces are now way past the 5% threshold set by the World Health Organization.
Having said that, International Sanitization and Protection Suppliers (ISPS) wants to focus more on convenient testing solutions for our clients by giving them access to affordable healthcare in the form of self-test kits.
The newest addition to our line of test kits is the Labnovation™ COVID-19 antigen self-test kit, which is approved by the Philippine Food and Drug Administration.
