The COVID19 intervention team is tasked with tracing individuals that had contact with people diagnosed with coronavirus, among other support activities. They began work on March 14 when patient zero was identified in Rwanda.
“I wanted to thank you, that’s why I am here. I know what you do requires selfless commitment. All of you, are serving selflessly, even with the knowledge that the work you are doing could have consequences on your health. You agreed to do this thinking of other Rwandans and the country. I can’t thank you enough,” the president considered.
Every one of the team members at the coronavirus intervention center has been assigned to trace members of the public that are known or suspected to have come into contact with patients diagnosed with coronavirus. The identified individuals are either quarantined or, if found with symptoms, are immediately put on treatment.
President Kagame thanked the group for their unwavering efforts and dedication.
He wished them a happy Easter, telling them that there would be a real-time to celebrate it when all this is over.
