NATIONAL Pandemic Response Controller David Manning and two members of his family who tested positive for the Covid-19 are currently in isolation.
In a statement yesterday, Manning, who is also the police commissioner, said test results for him and his two family members were confirmed on Saturday.
“Given the nature of my job as the controller and the high level of exposure, this was bound to happen sooner or later,” he said.
“As per the Covid-19 protocols, we are now in isolation. The only people who will have access to us will be the medical teams from the Department of Health.”
The department’s surveillance and monitoring team has begun contact tracing as well.
“All the people I had contact with in the recent past will be tested as well,” he said.
Manning said he was always impressing on people to have Covid-19 tests to know their status and protect their family.
“I am glad I did so I am now taking measures to protect my family,” he said.
“Do not be afraid. The Covid-19 is like the flu but it is five times worse and lasts a bit longer. Being tested positive is not a death sentence. Most people have recovered from the Covid-19.”
