Amidst the Alert Level 4 COVID situation in the island province of Catanduanes that led the Inter-agency Task Force (IATF) to extend the MECQ until the end of November, CatSU through the leadership of president, Dr. Patrick Alain T. Azanza, decided to acquire Antigen Rapid Test using private funds. The initiative was made to immediately provide testing for students and employees who manifests Covid-19 symptoms.
Dr. Azanza exhausted all efforts through proper coordination with the Department of Health (DOH) Provincial Officer John Aquino to train at least 5 nurses of CatSU in the administration of swab testing, as part of the University’s capacity building in its fight against Covid-19 virus. The training will be led by MHU.
The president announced via his facebook page that the antigen rapid testing kits have already been ordered and are soon to arrive. He also called upon donors who wish to help in the said project after donating a part of his November salary and RATA.
In closing. Dr. Azanza reminded everyone to strictly follow the standard health protocols, stay at homes to be protected and submit themselves for vaccination, so we can all have a Merry Christmas.
The campus-based antigen rapid testing aims to help the CatSU community as it shares responsibility to all Catanduganons in terms of health and safety. #cvecilles
