Suriname’s COVID-19 situation still under control – Suriname Herald


The COVID-19 situation in Suriname is still under control, says epidemiologist Radjesh Ori. He bases his claim on the fact that positively tested people can be isolated and contact tracing is done. However, everything has its limits, the epidemiologist said during the press conference of the Outbreak Management team.

If the situation does not improve, referring to the ever increasing number of infections, Suriname will no longer have control over the situation. The results should be clear in the second week after President Chan Santokhi announced the enhanced measures. If the situation remains unchanged, other measures will be necessary. The epidemiologist is frightened by the behavior of some citizens.

Ori stressed that the situation is very critical and that everyone should contribute to keeping it manageable. At the moment, the situation in mainly Sipaliwini and Paramaribo does not look rosy.
