DOH left the chat: Mayor Magalong hailed for ‘best’ contract tracing method


Baguio City Mayor Benjamin “Benjie” Magalong is definitely way ahead of other politikos in terms of handling the COVID-19 crisis.

On Friday, May 22, Dr. Teddy Herbosa, special adviser to the National Task Force on COVID-19, praised the retired police general turned Baguio politiko for implementing the “best” method to trace COVID-19 patients and the people with whom they interacted with.

“With Mayor B. Magalong. He has the best contact tracing methodology in the whole Philippines bar none!” Herbosa tweeted.

“The case findings and contact tracing used the principles of criminal investigation, digital technology and geospatial mapping combined,” he added.
