The Las Pinas City government conducted an orientation for the city’s contact tracers to enhance their COVID-19 tracing network.

Mayor Imelda Aguilar said the orientation was conducted to determine how to address concerns and suggestions of contact tracers for the city government to formulate immediate solutions.

Aguilar said the orientation also aimed to determine what part of the contact tracing work are not effective in the effort of bringing down COVID-19 cases in the city.

She said the orientation also helped train contact tracers in doing their work faster for more accurate contact tracing.

The mayor urged the contact tracers to continue to double their effort in bringing down COVID-19 cases in the city.

Aguilar said that based on the report of the City Health Office (CHO) on Nov. 25, 18 barangays out of 20 now have zero COVID-19 case.

She said the two remaining barangays with COVID-19 cases are Pamplona Tres with two, and Manuyo Dos with one.

The mayor said most of the COVID-19 patients in the city, totaling 34, are on their way to recovery.

Aguilar is aiming for a single-digit number of COVID-19 cases before Christmas.
