Melissa Diaz-Musa

The virus moves when you move, so there is need to reduce movement and keep wearing your masks. Now, the healthcare system is already strained because the team is dealing with the outbreak as well as the vaccination efforts, so the public needs to adhere to restrictions. Doctor Melissa Diaz-Musa, the Deputy Regional Health Manager at the Central Health Region, adds that with the COVID variants, you cannot let your guard down.

“You really don’t know who has COVID-19 and it is so transmissible at this point than the original strain. We are seeing in many work places and homes, almost everybody testing positive. Putting in some public health measures, we strongly recommend; yes definitely. Bringing up the curfew to an earlier time, reducing the alcohol sales to an earlier time, reducing the number of people in a workplace, asking employers to do a shift system so that if somebody does test positive, we don’t have fifty, sixty persons to go and screen. So definitely more measures will help us and it will give us the time to vaccinate our community and get people protected against COVID-19 while controlling the number of spread.”
