Ready to help: Gatchalian promises testing help to rest of Camanava as Red Cross slows


Rex Gatchalian is extending Valenzuela’s helping hand to neighboring cities in need of more COVID-19 tests.

The city mayor is stepping in to assist through the local testing center and their partners, hoping to keep the test results coming even if there are issues on the national testing program.

“In the meantime while Philhealth is threshing out their testing issues with Red Cross, Valenzuela through our ValHope Lab will be helping out our neighboring cities of Malabon, Navotas and Kalookan with their testing for COVID,” the politiko said.

They helped fetch samples from Navotas, which will then be run at the local testing facility.
