Al-Jamal added in a press conference that the committee has not yet been able to obtain a “PCR” device, nor on the committee’s allocations from the funds allocated by the GNA.
Al-Jamal explained that the failure to announce any cases of the virus does not mean that no cases were recorded, stressing the importance of transparency in announcing the infected to protect citizens, and that concealment and lack of transparency will lead to a disaster, according to him.
Al-Jamal indicated that the lack of equipment may lead to lack of control over the epidemic, adding that they rely on the awareness of citizens to adhere to self-quarantine and reduce gatherings and prevent mixing during the critical period, noting the importance of adhering to the instructions.
For his part, a member of the Consultative Committee of the Crisis and Response Management Committee to confront the Corona virus in the Municipality of Misurata Al-Hussein Al-Asoudi said during the conference that the equipment will remain an impediment to the work of medical teams formed within the municipality to combat the virus and limit its spread.
In response to Arraed’s question: “How do you comment on the statements of the Chairman of the Corona Virus Control Committee that was formed from Haftar in which he said,“ Misurata is a city infested, ”Al-Asoudi said only,“ We do not respond to an empty person”, he said.
It is worth noting that the Corona Virus Management and Response Committee in the Misurata Municipality was formed on March 21, by the decision of the Mayor of Misurata Municipality No. 10/2020.
