Rex Gatchalian explains why Valenzuela is doing mass testing


Rex Gatchalian has read numerous science papers to know what’s best for the city.

The Valenzuela mayor went to explain why he’s been fervently pushing for a mass testing for COVID-19 even if the Department of Health has previously said it was not needed. For Gatchalian, the science is clear on this.

“I’ve read it so many times, nagiging double ang effectiveness ng isang Quarantine kapag sinabayan ng testing, kaya kanina sinimulan na natin yan sa Valenzuela para malaman na natin once and for all sino ang positive at matulungan sila agad,” the politiko said.

The city has started mass tests by partnering with The Medical City to process swabs, with residents allowed to get tested for free.
