ROTARACT donates swab panels to Tagbilaran City

          The Rotaract Club of Tagbilaran turned over three (3) swab panels to the City Government last April 30.  It will be then given to the City Health Office (CHO) to be stationed in the swabbing center in Brgy. Poblacion 2. City Mayor John Geesnell “BABA” Yap recognizes the valuable contribution of the various civic organizations in the City, “We are truly grateful for all the help that we have been getting. The support and cooperation from our partner organization makes our burden lighter, we will be forever grateful”, Yap said.

         Just last week, GUGMA Tagbilaran donated digital thermometers and pulse oximeters to COVID-19 patients in Tagbilaran. City Health Officer (CHO) Dr. Jeia Pondoc said this will greatly assist the patients to monitor their health status, “Pulse oximetry is a non-invasive and painless test that measures your oxygen saturation level, or the oxygen levels in your blood. It can rapidly detect even small changes in how efficiently oxygen is being carried to the extremities furthest from the heart, including the legs and the arms. So, for those who are experiencing COVID-19 symptoms, this will assist and guide us on what interventions to take”, Dr. Pondoc said. The pulse oximeter is a small, clip-like device that attaches to a body part, like toes or an earlobe. It’s most commonly put on a finger, and it’s often used in a critical care setting like emergency rooms or hospitals. GUGMA Tagbilaran volunteers distributed the gadgets to the families affected by COVID-19.
