CHAIRPERSON of Noro COVID-19 Oversight Committee says most COVID-19 patients at Noro have been recovered.

“This is a good indication that the community transmission for Noro Town is likely contained on the hotspots and suspected it moves very slowly,” Robert Hickie said.

“Investigations reveal that the timely enforcement of the current internal measures imposed has a significant impact to slow down the transmission,” he added.

Though with the good news, Hickie said all internal strict measures for Noro are still valid until a review will be conducted to recommend some further improvements and to waive others to help community members and to restore normalcy.

He said his committee is having discussions to temporarily swift the old market venue to the new market area to allow good management and control of vendors and the public.

“Also the committee will further discuss to include reef fish and other ban products at the market.

“Remember we are only at the edge of the starting line and things might not come to our favours, therefore the committee will not comprises its strict measures but to stand our ground to protect our people,” Hickie said.
