Malacañang said they haven’t found a replacement for Baguio City Mayor Benjamin Magalong as contact tracing czar.

The Baguio politiko submitted his “irrevocable” resignation after drew flak for attending the birthday party of social media personality Tim Yap.

Photos and videos of the party showed not wearing face masks and not practicing social distancing.

“Well, unang-una po noong nagsumite ng letter si Mayor Magalong, wala pong nakasulat doon na it is irrevocable. Kaya po ang sinabi nga namin ay it is subject to acceptance at hindi naman po tinanggap ng NTF,” Presidential Spokesperson Harry Roque said.

“At sa tingin ko naman mahimas-himasan lang si Mayor Magalong at ipagpapatuloy po niya dahil wala po talaga tayong mahahanap na kapalit ni Mayor Magalong, dahil siya po talaga ang naging author noong ating contact tracing formula dito sa Pilipinas,” he added.
