Maramag also said that only two of the 110 personnel were not able to undergo the drug test because one of them was sick while the other one was on maternity leave.
The results of the test would be released on Sunday, March 8, said Maramag.
Those, who will test positive in the test, would be subjected to further investigation, she said./dbs
