PHO’s Doctor Esmeralda Nadela said, “Rapid antigen is equivalent to RT-PCR test, good as confirmatory. But if patient manifested symptoms and resulted negative in the rapid antigen, there is a need for a confirmatory RT-PCR. Antigen is convenient because you will know the result in just 15 minutes.”

The community now awaits for further information on the actions of the local IATF about Dipolog City Police Station and its Detention Facility after City Mayor Darel Uy issued an Official Statement earlier today.
