The National COVID-19 Task Force is expected to deal with the disease at three levels: the policy level, the health response and the socioeconomic response.
“It is not only medical response, but also these other responses that can help people through this pandemic,” Minister of Health Dr. Frank Anthony said.
At the policy level, the Task Force will examine the trends of the epidemic, the hotspot locations, and the current situation. These proposals are then used to advise the Government on the next step in managing the disease.
The health response encompasses testing, treatment and surveillance in terms of knowing the location of persons who tested positive.
Minister Anthony urged the public to continue to adhere to the COVID-19 protocols in place to stop the disease from spreading.
