LOOK: Manila LGU carefully collects used rapid test kits in Sampaloc
MANILA, Philippines — Personnel of the Manila Department of Public Services on Tuesday night carefully collected the used rapid test kits that were found scattered along a street in Sampaloc.
Photos from the Manila Public Information Office showed personnel of the city government also conducting disinfection activities along M. Dela Fuente Street where the used test kits were found.
A closed-circuit television camera footage earlier showed pieces of used test kits falling off from a garbage bag loaded on a sidecar of a scavenger’s pedicab.
Manila Mayor Francisco “Isko Moreno” Domagoso earlier said authorities are already tracking down the source of the used rapid test kits.
Manila Public Information Office chief explained that the used test kits would not have ended up in the hands of a scavenger if it was properly disposed of.
