The Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center has some 1,000 testing kits left after it conducted a risk-based mass testing and may run out within a week.

The Department of Health (DOH) on Wednesday, April 29, said that the Baguio General Hospital and Medical Center has already conducted 5,335 unique individual tests, the third biggest number of tests done after the Research Institute of Tropical Medicine (RITM) in Muntinlupa City and the Vicente Sotto Memorial Medical Center in Cebu City.

However, the BGH may run out of test kits within the week.

The Philippine Red Cross, which has conducted 5,236 tests still has 70,000 test kits available for use.

"We are begging the government for more kits," said BGH Director Dr Ricardo Runez, Jr. BGH is the main testing center for COVID-19 in Northern Luzon.
