Database for Stranded Persons Amidst the COVID-19 Pandemic

LGUs should provide transportation services for stranded people to go home to their specific areas.

To address the mounting issue of “stranded individuals” in the midst of the stringent implementation of Enhanced Community Quarantine (ECQ), the city government of Davao launched in 27 April, a Davao City Stranded Persons Database Center (DCSPD) for persons stranded in the city, or city residents stranded elsewhere. For residents stranded outside Davao City, information was gathered through the center's text hotline, e-mail and google links posted in the Davao City Tourism Operations Office (CTOO) Facebook Page. Contact details were secured to include residential address in Davao, place of stay while stranded, when they were stranded, and travel details such as purpose of travel, and travel companions.
