TARLAC CITY, Dec.19 (PIA) -- The provincial government of Tarlac has upgraded its facilities that will cater to COVID-19 cases.
Governor Susan Yap said Tarlac’s very own and already operational Molecular Laboratory Biosafety Level 2+ (BSL2+) can accommodate up to 180 swab samples. 
“Our Tarlac Molecular Laboratory BSL2+, which now accepts polymerase chain reaction swab and rapid test samples, is one of the highest in the country. We are now able to test our own swab samples with a turn-around time of 48 to 72 hours for the test results,” she said. 
Moreover, Yap mentioned the five government hospitals dedicated for COVID-19 cases ranging from asymptomatic, mild, moderate and severe.
