SELangkah: QR code Framework for Covid-19 Contact Tracing

KUALA LUMPUR, May 4 — Selangor rolled out a visitor registration system dubbed SELangkah: Langkah Masuk dengan Selamat to manage the spread of Covid-19 infection during the conditional movement control order (CMCO) period.

“Premise visitors are asked to scan the QR code posters, by using the camera function on their mobile phones, either before entering the premises or when making a payment, depending on the arrangement of the owner of the respective premises.

“The visitors’ logs of these premises will be regulated by the state government administration activated by a public health officer in the event of a Covid-19 incident reported on the premises (such as supermarkets, grocery stores, wholesale markets, and others). Through this initiative, all visitors to the premises can be reached and is easily contacted,’’ Selangor Mentri Besari Datuk Seri Amirudin Shari said in a statement.

I think this framework brings convenience to business owner to operate their business in CMCO. I realize few business already start using it for instance Big Pharmacy and MPSJ. How about you?

Can do a post to sharing how many apps Malaysian should have during this MCO and CMCO? :grin:

I think basically three of it since SELangkah just a QR code framework but not an app
