The minister in his address urged frontline health workers to always protect themselves when treating patients.

He said;

“I urge you all to take the necessary precautions. Please do not try to treat patients without adequate PPE,

“This advice is necessary due to the number of health workers who have tested positive, they are over 40 now and some others have had to be quarantined in the last two weeks due to exposure and are therefore not able to contribute to the health sector efforts.

“I urge you all to remain vigilant in the line of duty.”

Speaking on the country’s testing capacity, the minister, according to The Cable said the high number of new cases could be attributed to improved testing.

“The high number of new cases is a manifestation of improved testing but also of ongoing community transmission,

“The NCDC laboratories have the capacity to test 1,500 samples per day in 13 laboratories per day.

“We are testing an average of 600 samples per day because that is all the samples collected and sent for testing.”

He said the under-utilisation can be due to surveillance, sample collection and mode of transportation which could be improved through investments in logistics.
