What is Malungon QR Code?

Malungon QR Code is a matrix barcode image generated by Malungon's official contact tracing system, the Malungon Tracking Data and Control (MTDC) System for COVID-19, which is often referred to as a modern electronic logbook. It is used by both Malungon residents and non-residents to enter the town and establishments under its jurisdiction.

The Malungon QR Code, provided by MTDC, is an innovative tool for tracking the movement of all residents and non-residents who pass through Malungon's major borders. It is used to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 virus in the municipality through its contact tracing features.

Meanwhile, travelers who have not yet registered with other systems that can be scanned by MTDC may choose to register for a Malungon QR Code.

Conclusion

Apart from the generated QR-coded ID, the Malungon Tracking Data and Control (MTDC) system is one of the contact tracing systems in the Philippines with unique features. The MTDC scanning app can read QR code images generated by SafeDavao QR, TAPAT, and South Cotabato CCTS.

It is surprising because it is possible to do this without requiring individuals to register with MTDC; instead, they can use their QR Code.

If all LGUs in the Philippines have QR Code systems like this, where there is no need to register on different portals, it will be easier for people to go anywhere, especially healthcare workers, essential travelers, and authorized persons outside residence (APORs), because they will no longer need to use different QR codes.

All they need is the QR code they have, and it will be of great assistance. —AJ Yes
