More than 1,900 public and private institutions, restaurants, hotels and factories were registered to implement a QR Code “Stop COVID” to increase the efficiency and speed of prevention and control of the spread of the COVID-19 virus.
The Ministry of Health on Saturday announced the implementation of the QR Code.
The Ministry of Post and Telecommunications said today 1,954 public and private institutions, restaurants, hotels and factories were registered to implement a QR Code.
The move was made in response to the February 20 Community Incident which as of Sunday has seen 47 foreign nationals tested positive for COVID-19.
It said that the large number of registrations in this short period of time showcased the public’s support and participation in protecting people’s health.
“This system will record the location of the person logged who had scanned the QR Code (a system that does not track or affect the privacy of the individual) and make it easier to find those involved or affected if that location is found to have COVID infected guests or patrons,” it said.
