Loren Legarda congratulates scientist friend who made local COVID-19 test kits


Loren Legarda could not be any prouder of this guy!

The former Senator now Antique congresswoman showered her long-time friend, Infectious Diseases expert Dr. Raul Destura, for contributing yet another solution to the local COVID-19 response. The man and his team from the UP National Institutes of Health came up with the country’s first and only locally-made testing kits so far.

“Congratulations Dr. Raul Destura, a friend and brilliant scientist. I supported their group of scientists years back when they came to the senate, bewailing the lack of support from government. So, of course, I gave my full support. I love talking to scientists, our treasure,” the politiko said.
