Di lang chismisan! Contact tracing is a serious affair, says Calapan Mayor Arnan Panaligan
Contact tracing involves more than just tapping the rumor mongers.
In a Facebook post, Calapan Mayor Arnan Panaligan said the City Task Force on Covid Protection and City Contact Tracing Team is hard at work to identify possible COVID 19 patients.
Panaligan said that every time there is a confirmed COVID 19 patient, the team meets to review the patient’s contacts, discuss and evaluate them, and decide who would be tested and swabbed in accordance with protocols.
They also decide where to quarantine or isolate them.
The mayor said this was a meticulous process and entails a lot of work and focus.
The team does more than just listen to gossip!
