Do you recall having to visit a bank or a shopping mall with your uncomfortable face shield under the tropical weather of the Philippines?
Then you have to line up with social distancing, wait to be queued up, and then you have to look for your pen to minimize contact in filling out the health declaration forms to enter an establishment.
And then when an unfortunate positive case incident gets reported, the establishment has to rummage through piles of manual forms and hours of CCTV footage to comply with the government guidelines.
And then when you enter your mobile number and personal info in the form, you wonder if this process is complying with the data privacy law for storage and destruction. Will you receive spam SMS because of this?
