The Health Ministry’s initiative of medical teams to visit the neighborhoods is showing more cases. The approach will also minimize the spread but most importantly provide more accuracy. World Health Organization also suggested a similar idea when they said “Test Test Test”. There is still no vaccine available in the market but mass testing will really help the health ministry.
“Instead of waiting for someone to tell us that they have been infected and having to isolate all those who had direct contact with them, we go to the neighborhoods that we feel might have a lot of cases. We go to homes, we go to residential complexes so we can discover the cases before they come to us,” al-Rabiah said.Al Arabiya English, 2020
