Covid-19: Commission admits shortage of biosecurity means

Cuito - The Provincial Intersectoral Commission for the Prevention and Combat of Covid-19 in Bié Monday admitted that there were insufficient biosecurity means, mainly to support the technicians treating patients hospitalized in the health units.

In taking stock of Covid-19's usual situation, in a meeting with members of the Government, the Spokesman for the commission, João Campos, clarified that such health units are the sentinels for active surveillance, since many citizens show up with respiratory syndromes.

According to him, it is intended that technicians work more safely in these units, also calling for the intensification of awareness campaigns to combat the disease.

He announced the likely reception from Luanda on Tuesday of a thousand rapid serological tests and an equal number of other tests, the latter for the sentinel units, which will be used to test suspected cases.
