Pasig City accepts walk-ins for COVID testing, Vico Sotto says
Here’s another proof of effective COVID response in Pasig City.
Mayor Vico Sotto has announced that Pasig City is offering testing for the coronavirus at walk-in barangay health centers. People can simply contact the Pasig hotline to know the schedule of the COVID testing.
“This July, we started accepting walk-ins with symptoms for testing at our Brgy Health Centers,” Sotto tweeted Sunday, July 12.
He said they intend to use a combination of ECLIA antibody test and polymerase chain reaction (PCR) testing based on the protocols of the city health office. “Tumawag sa mga hotline natin para alamin ang mga schedule ng testing,” he said.

Nagsimula na ang ECLIA testing natin sa Pasig Covid-19 Referral Center.
Ang ECLIA (enhanced chemiluminiscence immunoassay) at isang uri ng antibody testing na halos 100% ang sensitivity/specificity kapag tama ang paggamit.
By next week operational na rin ang PCR testing natin. pic.twitter.com/35QPKohuwN
