This could also provide a health-information exchange that will allow contact tracing in the country, which will be very useful for the government. The C.L.E.A.R. pass, which is based on testing results, act as the main pass parameter which will be essential for all economic activities such as entry to transport, workplaces, restaurants, and buildings,” shared Hector Thomas Navasero, chairman and CEO of LabX Corp. “It is important for the public to contribute vital data so that their state of health and touch-points with other individuals will be updated from time to time. With this information, the authorities can offer other initiatives alongside mass testing that can help allay the public’s concerns,” said Norman Bungubung, LabX Corp. Director for Corporate Affairs. C.L.E.A.R. is a web-based and mobile contact-tracing application that provides local government units and business units with an organizational tool for their initiatives to combat COVID-19.
