Parañaque authorities raid Chinese-exclusive clinic


Local government officials and the Philippine National Police on Saturday raided a Parañaque City clinic that catered exclusively to Chinese nationals.

According to a report on "24 Oras Weekend," authorities found 10 chairs, each with its own dextrose stand, on the third floor of a commercial building at the Multinational Village.

Meanwhile, stethoscopes, BP machines, personal protective equipment, and varying medicines with Chinese labels for cough, flu, STDs, and unregistered Chinese capsules for the coronavirus disease 2019 were found inside the rooms.

"Walang sino man po puwede mag-dispute na iyon po ay ginagawang either illegal na clinic o illegal na hospital," City Administrator Ding Soriano said.

In another unit, authorities found boxes of face masks and different medicines for COVID-19. The underground clinic was quickly disinfected.

The Chinese national managing the clinic was arrested. He declined to comment. Joahna Lei Casilao/DVM, GMA News
