According to him, the taskforce has taken measures to ensure that community transmission is limited.

“ The office of the SSG will be closed and fumigated as well as the government house clinic where the deceased was admitted for a few days.

“All members of his (deceased) family and community who had contact with him will be traced, counselled and tested for COVID-19.
