In a message broadcast on Radio Rwanda, Dr. Ngamije assured the nation that among the COVID-19 patients in the country, no one is in critical condition and all are responding well to treatment.
The minister has urged the public not to stigmatize people they suspect to have contracted the virus because it is a disease like other pathogens.
Dr. Ngamije recently announced that the first patient and his wife that have been on COVID-19 treatment will be discharged soon.
“We hope that by the end of this week, the first patient and his wife will have been released from the treatment center. They have no problem so far, now they are fine but we are just waiting for the appointed days to come and check them out and find out if they are no longer infected, and let them go since they are now well,” he said.
