More free sites to get your COVID-19 updates by Smart Communications

With the community quarantine happening, I am pretty sure that it would be a bit difficult to get more updates. It is such a relif that as part of continuing efforts to empower the public with the right information amid concerns over COVID-19, PLDT wireless unit Smart Communications is offering free access to more relevant government websites.

So the list is longer now because Starting March 11, subscribers of Smart, Sun, and TNT can access the official websites of the following for free on their mobile phones:

  • National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council (
  • Philippine Information Agency (
  • Department of Health (
  • particularly the DOH COVID-19 Tracker (
  • Philippine Institute of Volcanology and Seismology (

The first two websites above provide official information and updates on the number and locations of persons under investigation (PUI), as well as advisories on what to do and how to stay protected.

Smart, Sun, and TNT users can also still make calls without being charged to the 911 Emergency Hotline and 8888 Citizens’ Complaint Center.

You can also get reliable information on Coronavirus updates via joining the telegram group

“The key to dealing with this situation is having the right information at all times. By providing free access to these sites, we empower the public by helping them get information that will enable them to protect themselves, their families, and communities,” said PLDT-Smart Public Affairs Head Ramon R. Isberto.
