The Jamaican government is to introduce mobile testing for COVID-19 as the country ramps ups its response to the virus.
Health Minister, Dr. Christopher Tufton, made the announcement Wednesday, April 1st 2020 during a digital media briefing.
As of last evening, Jamaica has so far recorded 44 confirmed cases of COVID-19, with three related deaths.
Dr. Tufton says he believes testing has been sufficient to date in giving an indication of the presence of the coronavirus in the population.
However, the Health Minister says the government will not be complacent and new measures will allow people to volunteer for testing
