RED CROSS SUPPORTS SWAB TESTING OF SEAFARERS
We appeared in Manila Bulletin:
“The PRC-ALMA agreement aims to accommodate a maximum of 1,300 crew members per day. From the time of swabbing, the results of the swab test will be released within 72 hours for regular tests, 24 hours for stat tests, and six to eight hours for super stat tests.
Normally, it takes private institutions from three to five days to release the results of the test. In some cases, the processing of the specimen can take up until a week before the results are released.”
