Fifty desktop computers and 10 laptops were donated to the Pasig City government on Monday, in support of the city’s fight against the coronavirus disease (COVID-19).
Mayor Vico Sotto expressed gratitude to the Gokongwei Brothers Foundation and to Robinson’s Land Corporation for the donation which will be used by the City Health Department (CHD) and its contact tracers.
“Gagamitin po ito ng CHD Operations Center at contact tracers natin (Our CHD Operations Center and contact tracers will use it),” Sotto said on Facebook.
“Sakto sa bago nilang workspace at bago ring IT system, ang Pasig Health Monitor (Just in time for their new workspace and our new IT system, the Pasig Health Monitor),” he added.
The Pasig Health Monitor, a citizen health information and monitoring system, was launched on Sunday which is seen to streamline communication and speed up the medical interventions of the local government, especially during this pandemic.
The mayor also said that the city’s contact tracers are set to move into their new workspace beside the City Epidemiology and Surveillance Unit (CESU) office.
“Our new and improved contact tracing workstation is almost done,” Sotto said.
He added that the donated computers will be installed at the new workstation which will help with the city’s contact tracing efforts.
