"We are accepting applications for the healthcare staff who could fit in contact tracing, preferably Pasig residents. We are also accepting applicants from other places because we need more workforces for contact tracing," he said, assuring that they will be compensated for their services.

"Marami kaming ginagawang adjustment sa sistema at protocols para mapabilis ang pag responde natin, lalo na ngayon na nag-spike ang bilang ng mga positibo sa lungsod at sa rehiyon (We are making several adjustments to the systems and protocols to hasten our response on Covid-19, especially that the positive cases in the city and in the region have spiked)," he said.
