Bohol Second district Rep. Aris Aumentado on Saturday said he allocated funds at the Department of Health (DOH) for locally stranded Boholanos for a free reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction (RT-PCR) test.
“Gagahin ta ug pondo sa DOH para sa atong kaigsoonang Bol-anon aron ma libre ang mga LSI in Cebu sa RT-PCR Test para maghatag ug gamay nga kahupay kanila,” Aumentado said in a statement.
Returning Boholanos have complained of huge prices from many of the 400-plus firms offering PCR tests.
Tests cost about P1,500 to P5,000 per person on average but prices can reach higher.
Stranded Boholanos can avail free PCR test at DOH Regional Office Swabbing Center along Osmena Boulevard in Cebu City.
” Open kini Monday-Sunday or kada adlaw from 8am-11am. Ang resulta ma-available after 24-48 hours. Before moadto, kindly contact staff Richel (0995) 703 1916 aron ma submit ang inyong information aron ma arrange daan ang inyong schedule para mas dali ang processo inig abot sa Swabbing Center,” he said.
