“Ang Malungon Tracking Data and Control system ay isang major initiative sa contact tracing sa Malungon and very timely ang pag-launch nito dahil palapit nang palapit na ang local transmission sa aming bayan,” Mayor Maria Theresa Constantino said during the daily Network Briefing News with Communications Sec. Martin Andanar, September 9.

About 85 percent of their population have already enrolled in the system and there are only a few non-residents who do manual logging of information. Establishments, schools and churches are now also implementing the use of the MTDC system.
“Dito sa aming probinsya nagpulong na ang Provincial Task Force and they are planning to replicate our system. Through Malungon.ph, napakadali pong mag-register at kumuha ng QR code. Pinoprotektahan din ang privacy ng ating kababayan,” Constantino added.
(Our Provincial Task Force already discussed the replication of our system. Through Malungon.ph, it is very easy to register and obtain a QR code. We also protect the privacy of our constituents)
The mayor said they got the system from staysafe.ph, which espouses fast monitoring on the destinations of people in the area to contain the spread of COVID-19.
Through their designated information technology (IT) personnel, Constantino said other LGUs can definitely obtain the system to respond to COVID-19 cases in their areas.
Their IT experts also visit various barangays to disseminate information and provide technical know-how in utilizing the system.
With the MTDC, residents are registered and issued with quick response or QR-coded identification cards to record and track their movements when entering establishments, schools or offices in the area. All residents and visitors who have no QR-coded cards will not be allowed to enter Malungon. (RTP/PIA10)
