OVP launches Swab Cab for antigen testing

/ 04:37 AM March 29, 2021

The Office of the Vice President (OVP) on Saturday launched a free mobile testing program called “Swab Cab” in communities where coronavirus transmissions were high. Robredo also urged the Department of Health to adjust its daily testing targets to about 90,000 tests a day, or about three times more than the current testing rate. The Swab Cab, which will launch on March 30 and April 6, is essentially a minibus going around pilot communities to offer free antigen testing.
