Government goes for targeted testing

A group of health workers in the country stressed the need and importance of mass testing for the novel coronavirus disease anew after testing czar Vince Dizon rejected the calls for it.

Dizon insisted that mass testing refers to testing the country’s entire population when he defended the government’s “targeted” testing in a recent briefing.

He said, “Ngayon po, siguro dapat din na maipaliwanag natin nang kaunti itong mga nagiging panawagan ngayon tungkol sa mass testing na ang pagkakaintindi natin ay dapat i-test ang lahat ng 110 million Filipinos.”

In the same event, the country’s testing czar reiterated this and said that the Duterte government’s approach is called risk-based and targeted testing.

Dizon added, “Lahat po ng eksperto sa Pilipinas at sa buong mundo ay hindi po nirirekomenda ang mass testing ng lahat…ng buong populasyon ng isang bansa. Ang kailangan po natin ay risk-based at targeted testing.”
