SM Conducts Several Rounds Of Testing On COVID-19 For Over 140,000 In Its Workforce

SM boasts that it has already conducted over 140,000 rapid tests across its different companies.

In compliance with the directive of DOTr Secretary Art Tugade for airports to have a dedicated molecular laboratory, the Mactan-Cebu International Airport Authority (MCIAA) together with the GMR MEGAWIDE Cebu Airport Corporation (GMCAC), begins operations of the World’s First Airport-Dedicated COVID-19 PCR Testing Laboratory.

The 400-sqm. laboratory is designed to process 1,500 to 3,000 tests per day with test results available after 24 hours, the shortest time in the country to release swab test results. It holds a BSL-2 certification from the Department of Health (DOH) and the Research Institute for Tropical Medicine (RITM).

MCIAA General Manager and CEO Atty. Steve Dicdican explains the initiative, saying, “When it became clear that testing capability was going to be a prerequisite for the resumption of international travel, we immediately embarked on the ambitious project of putting up the fastest built and accredited molecular laboratory with the capability to do mass testing and generate results in the quickest possible time. It should be noted that the airport will not profit a single cent from the laboratory because we envisioned this to be our contribution to the government’s effort to bring home our stranded kababayans at minimal cost to them and the government and to jumpstarting our economy.”
