As for possible COVID-19 positive patients, a hospital has been designated, fully equipped with medical doctors, intensive care nurses, anaesthetists and other related staff and all the necessary medical equipment and infection prevention materials. In addition, the national health laboratory is readily equipped with real time PCR, SARS COV-2 diagnostic reagents and trained laboratory technicians on the diagnosis of SARS COV-2.
Eritrea is doing its best to combat the spread of the virus and the government advises Eritreans abroad to stay where they are as much as possible, Mr. Saleh Mohammed, Director at the National Health Laboratory, said.
