TWO more patients have recovered from Covid-19, the Commonwealth Healthcare Corp. reported on Sunday.

On its website, CHCC stated that there are now 15 recovered cases while the number of active cases is down to five from seven.

As of May 30, as a result of the ongoing community-based Covid-19 testing initiatives, CHCC said it had already collected 5,448 specimens on Saipan, 349 on Tinian and 376 on Rota.

Gov. Ralph DLG Torres, for his part, reiterated his appeal to community members to undergo coronavirus testing.

He also encouraged Public School System teachers, other staff, and students to undergo a test before the reopening of schools.

“We have 12,000 test kits reserved for them at any time they want to schedule,” Torres said, referring to the 1,000 employees of PSS and about 10,000 of their students.

He said CHCC will also reserve test kits for private school students.

“We have enough test kits for everyone,” the governor said. “We have 60,000 [test kits] and if we need to order more, we have a good relationship with SolGent,” the South Korean manufacturer of the test kits, which have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

CHCC Chief Executive Officer Esther Muna, for her part, said PSS officials have inquired about the possibility of conducting tests at schools.

She said CHCC and the governor’s Covid-19 Task Force have also reached out to religious organizations to see if their members can be tested at their churches.

Covid-19 Task Force chairman Warren Villagomez said the governor, in close consultation with health professionals, has already outlined the priorities and the next steps to take to further safeguard the health of the community, and to minimize the spread of Covid-19.
