“Our mission is to reach all homes and centers for the elderly,” said PRNG Adj. Gen. José J. Reyes. “Given the enormous struggle that we face with this pandemic and other emergency situations that we’ve lived through, protecting our elderly and their dependents is a priority.”
PRNG teams are coordinating visits to reach more than 1,000 nursing homes, where military personnel, in collaboration with local Primary Health 330 Centers, will be administering both the rapid test and the molecular test to residents and staff. rates.”
