Benguet caretaker Eric Yap and ACT-CIS Representative Eric Yap has donated P5 million worth of medical equipment to the Benguet General Hospital (BeGH).
The equipment aims to improve the testing capacity of the Benguet for the coronavirus disease (COVID19).
Yap donated a reverse transmission polymerase (RT-PCR) machine and an automated extraction machine.
He said that the spread of COVID19 cannot be stopped if there is no mass testing.
“Malaking tulong man ang mga naipamahagi nating relief goods, personal protective equipment, gamut, vitamins at iba pa, naniniwala akong hindi natin matutumbok ang problema kung kulang ang ating kakayahan pagdating sa aggressive na mass testing,” Go said.
“Sa munti nating paraan, tayo po ay magbibigay ng PCR machine at automated extraction machine sa Benguet General Hospital upang makatulong na mas marami ang ating ma-itest,” he added.
