THE CITY government is making headway on its COVID-19 response with the launching of its one-stop-shop website–a platform exclusively for COVID-19-related information including vaccination registration. 

According to the City Information Office, the site – https://COVID19.davaocity.gov.ph/  will eventually serve as the site where Davaoeños can request COVID-19 swab tests and vaccination certificates. 

It also includes local issuances and national guidelines set by the COVID-19 Inter-Agency Task Force for the Management of Emerging Infectious Diseases.

The site’s “chatbot feature” answers the frequently asked questions regarding vaccination, travel requirements, and other concerns related to COVID-19. The content will regularly be updated to address the needs of Davao constituents. 

The COVID-19 Task Force is also in the works of developing a feature for Dabawenyos to secure swab test certificates. This is a contactless process so that people will no longer personally go to swab sites. 

Mayor Sara Duterte earlier mentioned that this website will hopefully address concerns of the people that are not addressed through the COVID-19 hotlines that are sometimes cannot be reached. 

“It has been discussed with the Davao City COVID-19 Task Force, and we noticed solution usually sa information problem is to open a hotline. Ang usual problem pud ani people assigned there do not know how to handle kung unsa ang buhaton and they are using numbers which cannot carry multiple calls and they several hundreds of text messages (It has been discussed with the Davao City Task Force.
