Professor Charmaine Gauci has announced a new control strategy, whereby persons with even mild symptoms like diarrhoea or breathing problems are being urged to call on helpline 111.
This appeal is being made so that a person’s clinical condition can be evaluated.
Professor Gauci once again urged the public to refrain from going out, in order to minimise the chance of meeting other persons carrying the virus.
The Superintendent again reiterated that one should only go out if absolutely necessary.
Professor Gauci appealed to any vulnerable person with a problem, and who has not received a letter from the Health Department, to call on 111 or send an email.
Professor Gauci again called for cooperation in order to protect the elderly and those with chronic illnesses.
