“No one will be left behind. All efforts will be to find and treat our kababayans with TB,” she stressed.
“The government will continue to provide free TB services amid the pandemic and the public is highly encouraged to share correct information about the disease especially the message that TB is infectious but it can be cured,” Garcia added.
