Sadly, we have lost 2 more patients bringing the fatalities to 107.
On a positive note, we are glad to report that we have discharged 27 patients from our various facilities, bringing the tally of recoveries to 1,353.
We have noticed that several testing kits that purport to diagnose COVID-19 have permeated the market. Our position is that we still retain PCR as the gold standard for diagnosing COVID-19 until such a time that WHO issues an advisory on the use of Rapid Diagnostic Tests.
Such figures have the potential to quickly overwhelm our healthcare facilities. We must not allow this to happen & I am appealing to our people to seriously observe the containment measures; Dr. Rashid Aman.
