Surveillance/Monitoring System by Ministry of Health at Work

Marvin Manzanero

The ministry release says that the student will remain in isolation and has no positive epidemiological link to any coronavirus. The situation gives health officials an opportunity to review and strengthen its procedures and processes for frontline workers at the border entries. DHS Doctor Marvin Manzanero says that prior to the student’s there is no need for alarm and that the surveillance monitoring system by the Ministry of Health is at work.

“It is not a scare, but a routine screening process as part of the activated surveillance efforts that we are conducting at border entry points or any other situation that gets reported to us, so that refers to even rumoured surveillance. As I say, it is part of the routine surveillance; it is going to happen wherever it needs to happen. We are reviewing all manifest of people coming into the country so if it happens anywhere else, we are going to do that. I don’t think that people should be necessarily screened. It is not coronavirus; we could be dealing with other matters and we will address the matters as they come about.”
