MANILA, Philippines — Hindi na kailangang magpunta pa sa health center ng Quezon City ang mga residente ng lungsod para magpa-book sa libreng CO­VID-19 swab test.

“We have opened an online platform so our residents can come forward and report to us immediately especially if they are close contacts of COVID-positive patients or if they are experiencing any symptoms. So we can counter and contain the virus as fast as we can, and on all fronts,” pahayag ni QC Mayor Joy Belmonte.

Sinabi naman ni City Epidemiology and Disease Surveillance Unit head (CESU) Dr. Rolando Cruz, ang  appointment system na ito ay dagdag sa on-ground contact tracing na ginagawa ng mga tauhan sa araw-araw.

“We are continously fin­ding ways on how to strengthen and improve our testing efforts. And as we realize that more residents are getting sick and need to confirm their status, we decided to expand this free swab service,” dagdag ni Cruz.

Para sa appointment, ang mga interesadong indibiduwal ay mag-fill out sa Reservation Form sa  http://bit.ly/QCfreetest

Oras na mai-submit na ang form na ito, makakatanggap ito ng tawag para alamin ang kundisyon ng residente ng  community-based testing (CBT) verifier.

Makakatanggap din itong confirmation text  na nagsasabi kung kelan ang schedule ng kanyang swab test.

Pinaalala ni Cruz na ang  swab testing ay by appointment at walang walk-ins.

Uunahing ma-swab test ang mga residente na close contacts o na-exposed sa COVID-positive patients, nakakaranas ng sintomas, buntis, dialysis patients at mga sumasailalim sa medical operations at mga nangangailangan ng COVID-19 test results.
