“As the government continues to pursue aggressive testing, tracing, and treatment as among the strategies to fight COVID-19, TESDA welcomes the opportunity to be of service and at the frontline of these efforts, along with the Department of Health and other partner agencies like the local government units and the Red Cross,” Lapeña said.
