The health minister at the press briefing on friday said that about 340 people in Phuentsholing alone are identified to be sick and vulnerable to the virus.
She said that most of them wished to stay back with their families instead of being moved to another facility and they agreed to stay home and responsibly refrain themselves from the virus.
However, in case of those who would prefer to go to other facilities due to their reasons like having no one to look after them or so, she said that the Office of the Gyalpoi Zimpon is taking Kidu applicants and will be assessing them and the ones facing difficulty would be taken care of.
She added, “Even for other Dzongkhags, those who have applied are being assessed and will be facilitated accordingly”.
The health minister exclaimed thankfulness to how His Majesty has nurtured the country like a graceful parent in such a difficult time.
