The Supreme Court (SC) on Tuesday (May 26) conducted rapid tests of its magistrates, officials and personnel to determine if they have been infected with the 2019 coronavirus (COVID-19).

“The rapid testing is the Court’s way of complementing the efforts of the government to curb the spread of the pandemic and to flatten the curve,” said Chief Justice Diosdado Peralta in a statement.

Peralta himself personally inspected on Tuesday the two medical tents which were used to conduct the tests at the SC.

While, the testing of SC justices and officials were held at the dignitaries lounge.

Peralta noted that the SC has sufficient number of test kits and most of its employees will be able to undergo testing.

The SC has more than 20 medical staff composed of physicians, nurses, and pharmacists who will conduct the testing and have been provided with personal protective equipment (PPE).

Should anyone be tested positive with COVID-19, Peralta assured that is is touch with concerned government agencies for the necessary action that have to be taken.
