Naga’s contact tracing system gets court approval, says Mayor Nelson Legacion
Naga Mayor Nelson Legacion is grateful that the city’s contact tracing application has hurdled a legal challenge.
Legacion announced the development in a Facebook post and shared snippets from the decision against the petition to strike it down.
The court noted that the digital system makes contact tracing systematic and more expeditious compared to the manual logbook system.
It also said even those without cellphones can use the system since they could print out their QR codes instead.
The manual logbook system also exposes personal data to other visitors of an establishment, it said.
Now that the court has spoken, Legacion reminded his constituents that in this pandemic, the opponent is COVID 19 and not fellow Nagueños.
Time to use the e-salvar app!
“GANA AN NAGA SA E-SALVAR!
Para sa mas madaling pag-intiende, katakod sa post na ini an malinaw na eksplenasyon kun tano padagos na gagamiton an e-Salvar sa Maogmang Lugar segun sa desisyon kan korte.
PIRMING GUIROMDOMON na an kalaban ta po iyo an CoViD-19 bako an kapwa ta Nagueños. In these extraordinary times, we need extraordinary measures that will help us in our response to the pandemic.
#NagaNa!” Legacion posted.
