Pwede na mag-Megamall! Vico Sotto cheers as Mandaluyong joins list of interconnected QR codes


More city mayors are linking their contact tracing technology with one another for users’ convenience.

Mandaluyong Mayor Menchie Abalos recently signed an agreement to connect the city’s MandaTrack app with similar applications of Pasig, Valenzuela and Antipolo.

This means the QR code shown by a Mandaluyong resident can be read by contact tracing apps in the three other cities, eliminating the need to download a new app.

Pasig Mayor Vico Sotto hailed the interconnectivity of the contact tracing applications.

“Starting today, you can now use your #PasigPass QR code in Mandaluyong, too! Puwede na tayong mag-shopping sa Megamall!” he tweeted Monday, March 1.

“PasigPass (Pasig) x ValTrace (Valenzuela) x Bantay Covid (Antipolo) x MandaTrack (Mandaluyong) 1 QR code for 4 cities!” Sotto added.
