Senator Dick Gordon, chairman and CEO of the Philippine Red Cross (PRC) said a special desk has been designated at the PRC’s coronavirus disease (COVID -19) call center for follow-ups on test results.
Gordon said this is to ensure that the results will reach the person who was tested at the earliest possible time, noting that there were cases where the person who was tested did not receive the result at all.
“Dun sa aming COVID hotline 1158, maglalagay ako ng area diyan na pwede kayong tumawag, ive-verify lang naming kung kayo ‘yun, at sasabihin namin sa inyo kung positive kayo o negative kayo,” the veteran legislator stressed.
“After the caller’s name has been verified, he or she could give a contact number and email address where the result could be sent.”
The seasoned lawmaker said that after the caller’s name has been verified on the list, he or she could give a contact number and the email address where the result could be sent.
“Puwedeng tumawag ang mga na-test sa 1158 at hahanapin namin ang pangalan niyo dun, kung ibigay niyo email niyo at cellphone number, at pagkatapos papadala namin sa email niyo ang result na certified ng aming mga doktor sa Red Cross,” the senator said in an interview.
