Today we lost another two patients to the coronavirus disease, bringing our total number of fatalities to 71. Our heartfelt condolences to their families and friends.

Since we started the targeted testing activity, the high numbers that have turned up for testing has helped us to identify, & isolate various epicentres, & deploy appropriate containment measures; Dr. Rashid Aman, Chief Administrative Secretary.

The numbers we have been witnessing from targeted testing firms that the virus is firmly established within our community & none of us is safe from contracting the virus. We therefore need each other to defeat this disease by adhering to the containment measures.

Hand washing, sanitizing, where possible, maintaining social and physical distance, should become part of our daily lifestyles.

The containment measures need to be complemented with a changed health lifestyle, which include eating balanced foods, exercising & avoiding situations that would lead to mental stress among others.

Eating healthy, getting enough sleep, and exercising is not only key to fight the Coronavirus disease, but is also critical for one’s overall wellness.

Our facilities are there to serve you. We have put in place infection control measures and we are encouraging you to seek medical care if you are unwell,” Dr. Rashid Aman.
