DOH on Robin Padilla’s self-swab: ‘Hindi pwedeng sarili niyong gagawin’

Department of Health Secretary Francisco Duque doesn’t endorse self-swabbing, as actor Robin Padilla did.

Duque was asked if the Health department allowed self-swabbing.

He said, “Meron tayong mga panuntunan o pamantayan para gawin ‘yan. Hindi pwedeng sarili niyong gagawin ‘yan dahil unang-una, ‘yung resulta magiging kwestyonable.”

He added, “Dahil kung hindi naman ito naaayon sa mga tamang pamantayan, eh kaduda-duda ang mga resulta. So hindi natin dapat ginagawa ‘yon.”

Padilla on May 23 posted a video of himself along with others self-swabbing because the nurse was still not around.

The actor wrote, “6 ng umaga mag umpisa na kami ng trabaho pero wala pa ang nurse. Hindi dahilan sa mga mandaragat ang walang nurse, kailangan isagawa ang covid test.”

Dagdag niya, “Basta isaksak mo ang swab stick hanggang sa dulo at makiliti mo ang utak mo, at kapag naluha kana tsaka mo iikot ng 5 hanggang 8 segundo yun na raw yun.”
