Some Angkas riders will also be assigned at Quezon City General Hospital, National Kidney Institute, Lung Center of the Philippines, Quirino Memorial Medical Center in Quezon City, Fabella Hospital in Manila and Ospital ng Maynila, according to an agreement between the Joint Task Force COVID Shield and Angkas.
Task Force Commander Lt. Gen. Guillermo Eleazar stated on Friday that healthcare workers who are on their way home may approach the Angkas riders to avail a free ride. They would only need to present their identification cards for validation.
Medical frontliners from the chosen hospitals are required to bring their own helmets with full-face visors.
Aside from with the free ride program, Angkas also donated over 1,000 protective barriers to the task force in order to aid in facilitating the distribution of materials to qualified riders.
