It was good news to family members of the 80 members of the Kwara State Rapid Response Team (RRT) as they all tested negative for coronavirus on Friday.
They have for about three months now been involved in the movement of coronavirus patients .
Commissioner for Health Dr Raji Razaq shared the good news.
‘For abundance of caution, we decided to test all members of the hardworking RRT and we are glad to announce to the Kwara public that none of them was positive for the virus. This attests to the excellent adherence to the infection prevention and control (IPC) and other safety protocols.
By all standards, we are doing very well in the management of the pandemic. This is due largely to the unquantified support the committee gets from the Governor and the understanding of our health workers. Everyone is on the same page to fight this virus. We are proud to be getting referrals from other states wanting to know how Kwara has been managing the development’ he said.
