President Paul Kagame Sunday visited the country’s COVID-19 Command Post, where he reaffirmed government’s support to various professionals working to end the spread of the virus in the country.
On Sunday, the number of confirmed COVID-19 cases in Rwanda reached 126, according to the ministry of health—with a total of 25 patients recovered.
The COVID-19 Command Post located in the capital Kigali brings together close to 400 professionals from across sectors to coordinate activities aimed at ending the spread of the coronavirus in the country.
“We thank each member of the team and all health workers across the country for your selfless service to your nation,” Kagame said.
“For now, the life of the country has to be on hold but there is hope that things will return to normal. And that hope coming true is founded on you and how you do your work,” Kagame told the team, adding that government will keep doing everything it can to support them so Rwandans can return to their normal lives.
The people at the COVID-19 Command Post among other things trace contact people for isolation.
