SM Foundation donates P5M worth of test kits to Mandaluyong


SM Foundation continues to help local government units (LGUs) ramp up their COVID-19 testing capabilities by donating test kits.

The latest recipient of SM Foundation’s generosity is Mandaluyong City, which recently received 200 test kits worth P5 million.

The test kits are good for 2,400 COVID-19 tests using the reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) method, the so called “gold standard” when it comes to testing.

Mandaluyong Mayor Menchie Abalos received SM Foundation’s donation.

In a Facebook post, Abalos thanked SM Foundation for its donation and said it will boost the LGU’s capacity to identify persons infected with COVID-19.
