Press Release: PNP MOLECULAR LAB OPERATING AT FULL CAPACITY TO ENSURE EARLY DETECTION OF COVID CASES
THRU INCREASED TESTING CAPACITY
Two PNP molecular laboratories in Camp Crame are now operating at maximum capacity of 420 tests per day. Another molecular laboratory with a daily testing capacity of 80 per day is expected to open in Cebu within the coming weeks.
PNP Chief, Police General Debold M Sinas said the increased testing capacity has allowed the PNP the added capability of early detection of COVID-19 cases in its ranks such that it has so far tested 38.74% or 85,623 of its 221,038 personnel.
In a briefing, Sinas noted the correlation of increased testing to the decreasing number of COVID-19 cases in the PNP.
“Madami kaming tine-test, mababa yung infection namin,” he said.
He noted PNP data that showed the number of RT-PCR tests conducted by PNP units on their personnel as guiding statistics to measure internal COVID response by PNP Units.
He said PNP Units were instructed to conduct early detection tests as part of government strategy to test early before the onset of symptoms.
As of 6:00PM of Sunday, December 13, 2020, the PNP has recorded total of 8,578 cases with 8112 recoveries,27 deaths and 439 active cases among PNP personnel.
