UBI Donates Rapid Test Kits To CHO in Davao City

The COVID-19 pandemic has shaken the world.  Yet in the middle of it all, Filipinos have been finding opportunities to showcase their “bayanihan” spirit.  Ulticon Builders Incorporated (UBI), one of the country’s largest construction companies, donated 3,000 DOH/FDA-approved COVID-19 Wondfo rapid test kits to Davao City Health Office (CHO).  Dr. Josephine Villafuerte, Davao CHO Chief Officer, accepted the donation and expressed her resolve to maximize the use of the test kits in helping slow down the spread of the virus in the  city.  

Davao CHO is also working with the local government to disinfect public parks, terminals, ports, and all city government offices.  Disinfection will be conducted either every week or every two weeks until the city has flattened the curve.  Dr. Villafuerte said, “We have to make sure nga na-disinfect siya kay para kung kinsa ma’y naa’y sakit, kung kinsa ba naa’y viral infection, dili pud siya matakod sa lain. So we want to make the environment safe for the children and the community (We make sure that these places are disinfected so that whoever is sick or has viral infection will not infect others. We have to make sure that the environment is safe for the children and the community).”

Dr. Villafuerte added and stressed, “Please practice universal precautions.  Kung unsa gani health advice, please sundon pud nato because you’re not just protecting yourselves but you also protect your family and the community. (Please practice universal precautions. Please follow health advisories because you’re not just protecting yourselves but you also protect your family and the community).”
