Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto appealed to residents and workers to submit themselves to free COVID-19 testing to prevent a spike in cases within the city.

In a Facebook post, Sotto announced that a pool testing will be conducted randomly for 3,000 market vendors, drivers of public utility vehicles and food handlers.

“Kapag inalok tayo ng Lungsod ng LIBRENG TESTING, tanggapin na natin agad. Huwag lamang ang sarili nating kapakanan ang isipin kundi ang kapakanan din ng iba,” he said.

“Naiintidihan ko po yung concern nung iba na mawalan sila ng kita habang may covid sila… Pero sana isipin po natin na kung positive tayo at wala lang sintomas, maaaring may nahahawaan tayo…tatagal ang pandemya… may posibilidad na ok ka lang, pero mamamatay ang mahahawaan mo,” Sotto added.

The mayor said controlling the spread of COVID-19 will be to everyone’s benefit, as it will allow more businesses to reopen and people can resume their activities.

“Pag-isipan natin nang mabuti… at sana maunawaan din natin na kung tanggihan niyo ang libreng test, mas lalo pa namin kayong pipilitin na magpa test… Para sa atin lahat din naman po ito,” he said.
