Countries that follow the WHO view have sought to buy test kits and increase the number of tests conducted daily. That is why landlords are kicking out health workers from their houses. For its part the UK recalled about 10,000 retired health workers and the US is offering visas to health workers who might want to come and work there. New facilities are being established and equipped to handle COVID-19 cases. What needs to be doneI would argue that we should not just follow the admonition of the WHO to “test, test, test” without examining it in the context of our local peculiarities.
