COVID-19 test results in Batac City hospital back to 72 hours

BATAC CITY, Aug. 25 (PIA) - After releasing a public statement last August 6 on the slight delay on releasing of swab test results, the state-run Mariano Marcos Memorial Hospital and Medical Center (MMMH&MC) announces that testing and releasing of swab results is now back on target at its turn around time of 48 to 72 hours.

As the hospital caters also to neighboring provinces, the MMMH&MC said they were able to implement several corrective measures to catch-up with the backlogs.

“Since August 10, we were able to overcome all our backlogs and we are back on track with the 48 to 72 hours’ turn around time for our RT-PCR (reverse transcription polymerase chain reaction) testing which is the gold standard in diagnostic confirmation for people who might have contracted coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19),” Dr. Modesty LeaΓ±o, head of MMMH&MC’s Department of Pathology and Laboratories, said.

When the swab testing went beyond its average turn around time, LeaΓ±o sought the understanding and cooperation of the public, especially for those who experienced the delay in the release of results.

“Testing for the disease is more complex and the matter of reporting continues to evolve in light of the increasing number of cases,” she explained.

Moreover, LeaΓ±o added that the Provincial Health Office and the Department of Health (DOH) are now responsible in releasing the swab results to municipalities and individuals.

“The Provincial Health Office and Provincial Department of Health are now responsible in releasing the results to respective individuals and municipalities and we also ironed out the process of receiving samples from them,” LeaΓ±o, who is a pathologist, stated.

As a possible second wave of the disease is anticipated, the hospital, being the only tertiary hospital in Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur, has been doubling its efforts to streamline the processes and come up with plans to become more prepared when it occurs.

“We know that this disease will keep coming out and that guidelines will be changed and developed and I hope, with MMMH&MC as the sole tertiary hospital in Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur, that we will be able to design a quick response mechanism base on scientific protocols,” Dr. Maria Lourdes Otayza, MMMH&MC’s Medical Center Chief II, remarked.

As of August 23, the province of Ilocos Norte has four active COVID-19 cases, 33 recoveries, and 37 overall confirmed COVID-19 cases. (JCR/AMB/MJTAB/PIA Ilocos Norte with reports from John Michael Mugas-MMMHMC)

Why are Filipinos known for their lack of reading comprehension?

Because according to most of them: "Well-mannered is better than well-educated" That's why most of the Filipinos never progress. It is because of the trash mindset.

How To Make A Country Worship You

Hayaan mo lang na lumala ng lumala ang ekonomiya. Hayaan mo magutom ang mga tao. Hayaan mo silang magpatayan. Hanggang sa maupos na ng tuluyan ang pag asa nila na magkakaroon pa ng pagbabago. Hayaan mo silang abala sa mga libangan nila at may mahabang oras ka na manlinlang at malilinlang mo talaga sila. Gumawa ka ng maraming misdirections para akala nila informed sila. Sa kawalan nila ng pag-asa, hagisan mo ng tira tira. Hagisan mo ng latak ng sarili nilang pera. Hagisan mo ng katiting na awa. Hindi mo kailangan ayusin ang mga ng problema ng bansa. Kailangan mo lang palabasin na may ginagawa ka kahit wala.

Isang Pasasalamat

Sabi nila: “There’s always something to be thankful for.” Kaya ako din may sasabihin! 🀣✌️ Isang pasasalamat! πŸ’— Sa lahat ng nagmamahal sa akin, maraming salamat po. Sa mga pagtulong sa akin, kahit hindi ko sinasabi, pero ginagawa pa rin, Thank you. Hindi ko man nasasabi personally pero taos puso ang pasasalamat ko sa inyo. Alam kong alam niyo na kung sino kayo. Isa na lang mahihiling ko talaga, ang mapanatili ang genuine and lasting friendship na nabuo natin. πŸ’— Kung may nasaktan o na-offend ako dahil sa mga paniniwala o pangbubully ko. Humihingi ako ng paumanhin. Kung isa ka sa ma-ooffend ko pa lang. Humihingi na ako agad ng paumanhin. Dahil din sa inyo, may natutunan at matututunan ako. Kung isa ka sa mga nagsasabing suplado ako, pasensiya na. Nagkakamali po kayo. =) Sa mga napasaya ko kahit paano, maraming salamat. Kayo ang magiging inspirasyon ko na ipagpatuloy ang paglaban ng taas noo at ngiting tagos hanggang puso sa darating pang mga taon. Sa mga nakakamiss sa akin,
