“BOG is up-and-run­ning”

Times of Suriname - - SHOWBIZZ -

The di­rec­tor of the Pu­blic He­alth Bu­reau (BOG) was re­por­ted­ly put in qua­ran­ti­ne af­ter an em­ploy­ee had tested po­si­ti­ve for CO­VID-19. “I find it re­gret­ta­ble that a ru­mor which claims that the BOG is clo­sed is being spread on so­ci­al me­dia. All our de­part­ments are up-an­drun­ning and we are he­re to keep on ser­ving the com­mu­ni­ty in the­se dif­fi­cult ti­mes”, BOG Di­rec­tor Mi­nou­che Bro­met told Ti­mes of Su­ri­na­me. She ma­de it clear that the per­son who tested po­si­ti­ve for CO­VID-19 is not her se­cre­ta­ry as is being clai­med in the ru­mor. “We ne­ver thought about clo­sing the BOG. The work must con­ti­nue. 178, our la­bo­ra­to­ry and eve­ry­thing el­se at the BOG remains ope­ra­ti­o­nal”, said Di­rec­tor Bro­met. “The pe­o­p­le should know that the pe­o­p­le at the BOG, the po­li­ce, the ar­my, nur­ses, doc­tors and me­dia wor­kers are wor­king on the front­line and that they are spa­ring no ef­forts in stop­ping the spread of CO­VID-19.”
