Vice Presidential daughter Aika Robredo has lauded the new contact tracing app launched by the Naga City government in order to beef up its coronavirus disease response.

“Really proud of Naga City. They launched a contact tracing app (e-Salvar), where every individual and establishment gets a QR code,” said Robredo in a tweet.

“Individuals from nearby LGUs who work/conduct their businesses in Naga, will also be asked for one,” she added.

The daughter of the Vice President shared that after just 2 days, there were already more than 90,000 sign ups!

“On Friday, the Naga City Govt will put registration desks in the different barangay halls to make it easier for those without smartphones — they can register and have their generated QR codes printed out as IDs,” she said.

According to the Naga City government, the eSalvar App will be used “exclusively by commercial and institutional establishments to screen customers, clients, and employees.”

“People’s movements and personal information will not be accessible to the establishments they’re visiting. Only the City Epidemiology Surveillance Unit (CESU), charged with contact tracing, can access and view records,” said the LGU.
