PSG requires everyone who goes near President Rodrigo Roa Duterte to undergo regular screening procedures which include rapid testing to detect COVID-19 infection. The procedure exempts nobody and is even administered to high-ranking government officials, PSG troopers, and close-in personnel who always accompany the president. This is in addition to existing medical assessments and stringent measures being enforced by PSG in order to ensure the safety and good health of the President.
These rapid tests are administered by PSG Task Force COVID-19 medical team. It is totally different from the Polymerase Chain Reaction (RT-PCR) test kits administered by RITM and its affiliates.
Those found positive during the rapid tests will not be allowed to enter the facility. Much more if the concerned party manifests fever and other symptoms related to COVID-19.
PSG does not claim that the results of the rapid tests are definite and absolute. It is still subject for confirmation thru RT-PCR tests administered by RITM.
