She was also recognized by People Asia Robredo is honored with the award. She said the award is more for the people who have trusted and continue to trust the work being done… by the Office of the Vice President. another crowd favorite: Pasig City Mayor Vico Sotto.

Vice President Leni Robredo once again received praises for an initiative that has never been done or suggested by anyone from President Rodrigo Duterte’s ‘best and brightest.’

The Office of the Vice President (OVP) once again spearheaded an initiative that is now linked to their Bayanihan E-Konsulta program, a facebook Messenger bot that allows Filipinos to receive medical advice free of charge online.

Today, Robredo announced the next step in their Bayanihan E-Konsulta program: a mobile laboratory that provides COVID-19 and blood tests as well as an X-ray.

The mobile laboratory will undergo pilot testing in Quezon City, one of the hardest-hit cities within the NCR Plus bubble.

In a report from GMA News, the mobile laboratory will test patients who have been ordered by volunteer doctors from the E-Konsulta program to take said tests.

Robredo announced the news via her facebook page, saying, “This is very helpful for local government units, especially that there is congestion in our hospitals.”

Two ambulances were hired to fetch patients to ensure the health and safety of those involved.

The mobile laboratory looks to further de-congest hospitals, a big help to local government units who are having problems providing these services to their citizens.

As expected, Filipinos were all praises for the Vice President, who has been dubbed as ‘Busy Presidente’ since her efforts to coordinate search and rescue during last year’s typhoons.

One Netizen even created a short thread on how the OVP has addressed gaps in the Government’s COVID-19 and disaster response.

As proof, Robredo would post a photo of her lunch for today, April 14, after trying to catch up with backlogs from their E-Konsulta program.

She would also urge local government units and private institutions to adopt a similar system to her mobile laboratory–to further decongest hospitals in the nation’s capital.

Her efforts did not go unnoticed, as PeopleAsia Magazine recently awarded Robredo as one of its People of the Year for 2021.
