Addressing the gathering, the State Commissioner of Health and Chairman, State COVID-19 Control Taskforce, Jafar Muhammed said the assistance will enhance the capacity of the Taskforce.

In his words, “Though the isolation centre in the state has already been well equipped to an international standard, the grant will definitely enhance the capacity of the Taskforce in providing preventive care and treatment of COVID-19 patients in the state.”
