Sarangani adopts new system of contact tracing

ALABEL, Sarangani (September 9, 2020) – Dr. Arvin Alejandro, Provincial Health Officer, explains contact tracing in Sarangani, in the new unified system that the Provincial Government recently institutionalized, is being done for either suspect, confirmed, or probable. He said the new system is an initiative of Governor Steve Chiongbian Solon that should be “functioning immediately when there is a report of either a suspect or a probable case. Because it is very important for us to contain the disease immediately even when a suspect has been identified.” On September 4, a coordination meeting was conducted for the operationalization of Sarangani’s contact tracing teams composed of eight members from each municipality in the province.
