Bauko Mayor Abraham Akilit urged the Philippine National police to put up molecular laboratories in their regional offices so that cops can immediately tested for the coronavirus disease (COVID19) before they are deployed.
The Mountain Province politiko made the remark after several police officers assigned in Benguet tested positive for COVID19.
The cops were visiting different parts of Mountain Province.
Akilit said the Mountain Province’s first COVID19 case was the brother of a police officer.
He also said that many frontliners have been infected by COVID19 lately.
