Pwera ‘Vico Lab’ please! Mayor Sotto crowdsources the name of new testing laboratory
Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto is using the power of crowds to find a name for the city’s new testing laboratory.
Sotto however has imposed one exception to picking the perfect name for the diagnostic facility: No to ‘Vico Lab.”
He jokingly threatened to impose a fine against anyone who brands the COVID laboratory after his name.
“Recently we’ve had difficulty/backlogs in testing. But with our Molecular Diagnostic Laboratory nearing 100% operations, we will be able to solve this problem. (We have ECLIA and PCR testing here) But i need your help! For registration w DOH, the lab needs a name! Suggestions??” he wrote on Facebook.
“Pag may nag-suggest na Vico Lab, magmumulta ng 500,” he said.
He said the laboratory name should survive even after the coronavirus pandemic.
“Magagamit natin ang lab/machines kahit pagkatapos ng pandemya (dengue, HIV, etc.),’ he said.
“Ang lab ay nasa PCCH, ang sa kasalukuyang Covid-19 Referral Center (nasa partial operations na siya ngayon),” he said.
