In the raging battle against COVID-19, Cosmotech Philippines in cooperation with Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) Launched Traze Contact Tracing App

TRAZE is a nationwide and unified contact tracing app that automates manual contact tracing by using QR code scanning such that the tracing process done in several days can now be achieved in just few minutes.
