The Philippine government released an advisory listing facilities with the most affordable testing for detection of COVID-19.
Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque, in a press briefing on September 22, gave the names of the following facilities offering Reverse Transcription - Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) tests that cost between P1,750 to P2,000:
RT-PCR tests are considered the gold standard for COVID-19 testing in the Philippines. (FAST FACTS: What's the difference between PCR, rapid antibody tests?)
Private facilities also offer RT-PCR tests, but with a pricing that is said to be higher than the above-listed locations.
There are also locations where one can take a drive-through RT-PCR test. (LIST: Where to get drive-through coronavirus tests in the PH)
It is advised that one call ahead to your facility of choice to confirm pricing and schedule an appointment for the test, if possible. – Rappler.com
