Update agad! Isko Moreno creates COVID-19 social media portal
Manila Mayor Isko Moreno has launched a social media portal which will allow residents to update local health officials about their current health situation with ease.
The portal is accessible via messenger of Moreno’s Facebook page. (facebook.com/iskomorenodomagoso). It includes access to an online questionnaire only for Manila residents, as well as official hotlines of the Manila Emergency Operations Center (MEOC) and the Department of Health (DOH).
Moreno said the portal is a “powerful means” of quickly identifying persons who may need medical attention now.
“This is also a means to help direct you to qualified medical professionals who can provide you valuable medical assessment, guidance and advice and information,” he said.
Moreno said the city government is using technology to accurately monitor and assess the current health situation of residents.
The portal supplements the city’s on-ground monitoring regularly conducted by barangay officials, he added
