Manila Mayor Isko Moreno on Wednesday announced the opening of the city's new drive-thru COVID-19 testing center.
Moreno said the new COVID-19 testing facility will use the serology testing machines recently purchased by the city government.
"This is part of our continuing effort to massively test, to test EVERY MANILEÑO, especially those who will pass by Lawton," the mayor said.
The facility is located in front of the Andres Bonifacio Monument near the Manila City Hall, according to a tweet by Super Radyo dzBB reporter Isa Avendaño-Umali.
