The facility can be found in front of the Andres Bonifacio Monument where residents can easily access it near the Manila City Hall.
According to the Mayor, the serology testing machines that the city government recently purchased will be used for the new facility.
For our mass testing in Manila, we will buy another COVID-19 serology testing machine. We currently have three.
Four machines will have a capability of processing 22,400 tests a week or 89,600 tests a month (16 hour operations/day for 7 days).
