To ensure that housemates for the new season of Pinoy Big Brother (PBB) are all safe from COVID-19, Maxicare LAB on Wheels successfully conducted Antigen Testing for all members of the House, as part of the show’s health protocols.

conducted Antigen Testing for the Pinoy Big Brother (PBB)
Adhering to Maxicare’s stringent
health standards, the Antigen Tests were administered by PPE-geared registered
medical technologists and nurses.
“The goal is to limit unnecessary
contact and exposure,” says a Maxicare staff member who facilitated the testing
process. “Each housemate entered the testing room one by one then they went to
their respective rooms as soon as the tests were done. For maximum protection,
all housemates were required to wear face masks and face shields.”
The entire process, from testing
to releasing of results, took only around 2 hours.

protocols prior to the premiere of its new season.
The tests were made possible
through Maxicare LAB on Wheels, Maxicare’s fully equipped mobile health vans
for COVID-19 (Roche Antibody Test, Antigen Test, and RTPCR Test) and routine
blood testing. Now, patients no longer have to wade through the traffic or wait
in crowded rooms for hours. Maxicare would be
the one who will come and visit the preferred location within Metro Manila,
ensuring that the group meets the entire minimum requirement.
Each mobile health van has a
testing capacity of up to 100 people per day. Maxicare LAB on Wheels also
offers access to Telemedicine video consultation, uses an electronic medical
record system, and sends the results via email.
Just like how Maxicare took care
of the PBB housemates, it aims to reach more Filipinos so they can
live their best lives wherever they are.
