The Philippines continues to battle rigorously with the pandemic as the number of active COVID-19 cases is getting higher each day. Hence, the need to amplify testing efforts all around the country is showcased through the government’s implementation of less expensive but highly effective testing alternatives.
On April 06, 2021, the Department of Health (DOH) published a press release about Department Memorandum (DM) No. 2021-0161, which contained guidelines on the use and administration of saliva-based RT-PCR testing.
The International Sanitization and Protection Suppliers (ISPS) now includes affordable saliva RT-PCR to its list of COVID-19 testing methods available for booking in the clinic or in mobile operations; all tests are conducted by our medical personnel.
