    (This is the same resort where they found 3000 illegal Chinese workers a while back and the owner fled to Hong Kong).
    Where is that?

    Great analytical skills there! You don't think unlicenced underground medical facilities treating a deadly and contagious disease is something the Government should be concerned about?

    In a place with such low testing that many people have it without being tested? Sure.

    You claim to be on the Board of two companies in the Philippines.

    It is a requirement that employees returning to work after the lockdown are tested.

    So for example all the SM malls in Pampanga just reopened and all their employees were tested for virus and antibodies (quick tests which are not recorded in the national figures). Must have been high hundreds or thousands.

    Of those 1 was virus positive, 3 antibody positive. That in a high level province.

    So my question is what are the figures for your companies?

    Your query prompted me to ask about Covid testing at yesterdays Board call. All the employees at the plant are not being tested because they have not been allowed to leave the plant since this all started (and still can't leave). None of the Manila office staff have come back yet, but there is a detailed plan for antibody testing when they do. It was noted that the antibody test was being used because it was much cheaper than the PCR test but that the accuracy was only 60%. Anyone positive on that will get a proper PCR test (run by the local hospital testing facility). Make of that what you will.

    Dominic Cummings thinks he is above the laws he helped shape.
