The covid-19 response will be more decentralized in Grand Lomé

(Togo First) - In the Greater Lomé region, the main outbreak center of the pandemic in Togo, authorities will fight the virus in a more decentralized manner. According to the national coordination in charge of the Covid-19 response (CNGR), this will help deal with the pandemic swiftly and rapidly. 

Starting from November 10, a deconcentration plan will be launched by deploying a rapid intervention team and another to keep track of domiciled asymptomatic cases in every health unit in municipal districts. 

The new approach also includes the decentralization of testing. Four private health centers will be able to test individuals for a fee approved by the government. 

Additionally, a unit in charge of travelers will be deployed in every public health center. 

At present, the country has confirmed 2,381 cases, including 1,691 recoveries, 57 deaths, and 633 active cases. Most of the recent cases were identified in the Golfe and Agoè prefectures.
