Effective Contact Tracing

LGUs can adopt the contact tracing measures Baguio City has implemented to effectively combat the spread of the COVID-19 virus in their area.

Instead of using numbers, the Baguio City LGU discloses the patients' real names to other citizens. The LGU has personally explained to the patients the reason why names will be disclosed.

Local officials also provided a crash course on investigative and interviewing skills for the contact tracing team composed of health frontliners.

Aside from that, Baguio City also implemented mass testing for its citizens using an artificial intelligence CT scan analysis system. The CT scan takes seven minutes to detect a viral infection in the patient. Once a viral infection is detected, they immediately isolate the patient and launch the contact tracing.
