Vice President Leni Robredo couldn’t help but feel proud of her daughter, Dr. Tricia, for being one of the volunteers of her mass testing program.
On Facebook, Robredo shared that she has been receiving photos of her second daughter, Tricia while volunteering in their Swab Cab program in Malabon.
The Vice President wrote, “Tricia was one of the volunteer swabbers of our Swab Cab today and a number of people she was with sent me pics and tagged me on Facebook.”
The Swab Cab program was initiated by the Office of the Vice President where a mobile COVID-19 testing facility goes around areas with high transmission and infection rates to offer free testing. According to Robredo, in two days of their testing in Malabon they were able to record 80 COVID-19 positive individuals.
She expressed her gratitude to everyone who helped make Swab Cab successful.
“Thank you very much to everyone!! Thank you most especially to the BHERTs who did a great job in the immediate contact tracing. The good thing about swab antigen tests is results are out in 15 minutes. Whenever there is one who tests positive, an ambulance on standby brings him/her directly to a pre designated isolation center. Then, contact tracing immediately ensues,” she added.
Meanwhile, Malabon Mayor Antolin “Lenlen” Oreta III also thanked Dr. Tricia for her efforts.
“Dra. Tricia, Maraming Salamat sa iyong efforts, ngunit more than the number of Antigen Tests you conducted today, we are more thankful for the inspiration your family provides. For us to overcome this pandemic we all have to do our part. Caring for others is another form of cure. Again, thank you VP Leni Robredo and family for caring,” he wrote on Facebook.
