MANILA, Philippines – As COVID-19 cases continue to soar in the Philippines, the need for widespread and quick testing becomes more necessary. 

Some Philippine hospitals and local governments have already set up drive-through facilities. More than providing faster service, drive-throughs are considered safer because there is less face-to-face contact. 

Rappler compiles where these facilities are now available:

1. The Medical City – Pasig City, Metro Manila

  • Schedule:  Mondays to Sundays, 7 am to 6 pm
  • What test they offer: The hospital offers a drive-through Enhanced Chemiluminiscence Antibody or ECLIA test, which detects antibodies in the blood if a person’s body has been infected with COVID-19. The Medical City characterizes it as the most reliable antibody test.
