“AS the focus is now shifting to the western border, the national government is looking at building more quarantine stations in Western and Choiseul Provinces.
“Speaking at the weekly talk-back show on Sunday, Secretary to Prime Minister (SPM) Dr. Jimmy Rogers said this has already been confirmed by the Camp Management Committee and Ministry of Finance and Treasury.
“Dr. Rogers said at the moment resources are available to quickly finalise the quarantine stations at Nusatupe, Noro, Nila, and Taro.
“Plans on those quarantine stations have been put in place because those are the areas we thought those at the western border can be based at,” he said.
“He said testing capability in Gizo is being put up and health is hoping to also expand to Taro so that testing can also be carried out in Choiseul Province headquarter.
“Those are the important steps being taken by the Ministry of Health and Medical Services, the Oversight Committee and the government as a whole,” he added.”
