BDO Foundation partners with Go Negosyo for the implementation of pooled RT-PCR testing in Mandaluyong

As part of concerted efforts to contain COVID-19, BDO Foundation is partnering with Go Negosyo, the Philippine Children's Medical Center and the local government of Mandaluyong for the implementation of pooled RT-PCR testing in the city. 

 

The event  highlighted messages of support from the BDO Foundation leadership, Presidential Adviser for Entrepreneurship and Go Negosyo founder Joey Concepcion, Mandaluyong City mayor Menchie Abalos, Philippine Children's Medical Center executive director Dr. Julius Lecciones, and Iloilo 1st District representative Dr. Janette Garin, who serves as project consultant. 



BDO Foundation previously launched the initiative in Makati City and Cebu City for the testing of an estimated 8,000 public market vendors and PUV drivers. Testing in Makati has been completed, and a report is being prepared. Training in Cebu has begun, and actual pooled testing will be performed soon. 

 

Considered a game changer in efforts to slow the spread of the coronavirus, pooled testing combines swab samples from individuals and examines them together using a single reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction or RT-PCR test kit. Pools of five, 10 or 20 persons are tested depending on the prevalence of COVID-19 in an area. The method is expected to boost capacities, expedite tests and significantly reduce costs.
