On Thursday, Mayor Sara Duterte-Carpio announced that the mandatory used of Safe Davao Quick Response (QR) code is extended to November 23, given the reports on the difficulties being encountered on its registration.
“The people accessing the site at the same time reached 10,000. Thus, we have to take down the site for people to calm down. We will resume the registration tomorrow,” Mayor Sara said in her live talk with Davao City Disaster Radio.
Earlier, the Davao Mayor said that the QR code’s mandatory use will take effect on Saturday, November 7. However, due to some technical glitches, she decided to extend the code’s mandatory use to November 23.
“May I remind everyone that November 23 is not a deadline for you to register for DQR code. You could still register even after November 23,” Mayor Sara said.
Mayor Sara said the Safe Davao QR aims to help accelerate contact tracing and enforce non-essential travel ban to curb the coronavirus disease (COVID-19) spread.
City Human Resource Management Office acting department head Lemuel Ortonio told in an interview with Manila Bulletin that their web development is already fixing the glitches.
He said the glitch is due to the high volume of people doing the registration simultaneously.
“The city’s web development team has already upgraded the specifications for the database and the system to fix the issues and concerns we experience during the registration for Safe Davao QR code,” Ortonio said.
The Safe Davao Quick Response (QR) generation glitch prompted the City Government’s web development team to check its database and system following several complaints from netizens.
