The employees of the company First Gen Corp recently held a “hi-tech” tree planting activity to help the livelihoods of the indigents who were deeply affected by the pandemic. Together with volunteers from First Philippine Holdings Corp, they planted mangrove saplings in Lobo, Batangas virtually. The “e-Planting” activity of the Employee POWER (EmPOWER) was done with some employees from Mindanao. The volunteers chose their mangrove planting spot the way a movie goer chooses his or her movie seat. They can choose their modes of payment and “adopt” a mangrove seedling for a price of PhP150. The names of the volunteers were engraved on a bamboo slat which was planted beside their seedling. 
Batangas plans to put up additional COVID-19 Molecular Testing Laboratories
The City Government of Batangas discussed plans of putting up more COVID-19 molecular testing laboratories in the different districts of the province. This is to strengthen the city’s testing and tracing capacity against COVID-19. The molecular laboratories can process a huge number of tests within 24 hours, and the processing fee of the said labs will be priced lower than the normal fees of PCR molecular testing labs in the CaLaBaRZon Region. As the meeting about the additional labs continues, the government is still strictly implementing health standards among its residents to help curb the spread of the disease.
