Globe grants free access to Covid Kaya

Globe Telecom Inc. is providing free mobile data access to frontline workers as well as suspected Covid-19 patients through its partnership with the Department of Health (DOH) and the World Health Organization.

In a statement, Globe Chief Sustainability Officer Yolanda C. Crisanto said Globe or TM users may input their information in the Covid Kaya mobile app for them to use the so-called Cart System site for free.

Covid Kaya is an electronic case investigation form used by local government units, laboratories, and hospitals to input Covid-19 patients details and information which can be seen by other facilities of the DOH for faster and easier validation of cases.

The Cart System is a patient information system which allows suspected Covid-19 patients to get on queue in a specific testing center before going to the facility. This gives the facility control over the number of people visiting to prevent overcrowding. “Through this initiative, we hope this further helps the DOH in detecting incidents and gathering information on Covid-19 so we can have a comprehensive and evidence-based national response to the pandemic,” she said.

The DOH reported on Wednesday that Covid-19 cases in the Philippines have already exceeded 32,000. The agency said the country recorded 470 new cases (357 fresh and 113 late), 2,204 deaths and 8,656 recoveries.
