With the nationwide lockdown entering the third week, the country’s lockdown story so far has been positive.
The collective effort of both the government and community is behind the success, according to the World Health Organisation (WHO) representative to Bhutan Dr Rui Paulo de Jesus.
He said that the massive testing initiated by the health ministry following the local transmission in Phuentsholing indicated the government’s seriousness to address the situation.
“Bhutan must and is using the window of opportunity provided by the lockdown to trace, track, treat and isolate all positive cases.”
He said that the uniqueness of Bhutan’s fight against the pandemic was the whole-of-the-society and government approach guided by His Majesty at the helm.
