Ministry of Health provides an update on the increase in Covid-19 recoveries

 

Over the weekend, the general public would have noted on the Covid-19 dashboard that there was a significant increase in the number of recoveries from Covid-19. The Public Health Team had, until recently, largely depended on a manual system for tracking COVID-19 cases in the TCI. This process ran seamlessly at the beginning of the epidemic when the number of daily cases reported was minimal. However, as the number of cases and the associated contact tracing work increased the manual process of data collection became difficult to maintain. While it did not impact the tracking of positive cases, it did cause a delay in the reporting of persons being released from quarantine and persons being considered recovered.   

 

To facilitate more efficient data collection, and to prevent delays in reporting, the World Health Organization’s Go.data system, an electronic data processing system, is being implemented throughout the islands. The Go.data system is an outbreak investigation tool for field collection during public health emergencies. It includes functionality for case investigation and contact follow up and is designed for flexibility in the field. With the new system, contact tracers throughout TCI are equipped with tablets for the purpose of data collection and up-to-date reporting. This system is already being utilized in Providenciales and Grand Turk, following a brief training session, and will be rolled out to the other islands throughout the week.  

 

As a part of the data transfer process, i.e. from the old system to the new system, an exercise was undertaken to update all case and contact records. This led to a significant increase in the number of recoveries being reported and a significant reduction in the quarantine numbers being reported. It is important to note that with the up-to-date recording, facilitated by the Go.data system, releases/recoveries will be reported in a more timely manner.  It is also important to note that all recoveries were reported in accordance with the new policy which was recently adopted by the Government. Persons have been released in accordance with this policy, however there was a lag in updating and reporting active cases due to the high workload of the public health teams.

 

The Ministry of Health wishes to acknowledge the hard work of the National Epidemiology and Research Unit who were integral in implementing the Go.data system as well as the Public Health Team for their continued efforts in the field. This positive development will greatly assist in timely data collection and reporting going forward.

NEWS RELEASE

 

Saving our Seas, one collection at a time!

 

Saturday, September 19 marks International Coastal Clean-up Day and the Department of Environment and Coastal Resources (DECR) is looking to continue its tradition of getting the whole country involved in cleaning up the coastlines of the Turks and Caicos Islands.

 

The main goal of this initiative is to encourage people to go out into their communities, across the TCI, and remove litter found along the shoreline, underwater, or in bushes in order to help create healthy waters for everyone, including the wildlife that calls these coasts home.

 

You, your school, your business, and/or your organization can get involved by getting a group together and spending an hour out of your day cleaning up a beach, bushy area, path, road, or sea-bed in your local area. You can also join the DECR at the Kid’s Park, lower Bight Road, Provo from 07:00-09:00 on the 19th.

 

Show you care for the TCI’s natural environment by getting involved in International Coastal Clean-up Day! Together we can fight for trash-free seas, on Saturday, September 19. It doesn’t matter where you are, just grab a bag and collect that litter!

 

Register yourself, your group or organization with the DECR, by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and pledge your commitment to save our seas!

 

**Strict COVID-19 protocol will be observed and enforced.

News release

 

Caribbean Wellness Day Celebration, September 2020

 

The Ministry of Health, Agriculture, Sports and Human Services observes Caribbean Wellness nationwide during the week of the 14th September 2020.

 

Caribbean Wellness Day is celebrated annually on the second Saturday in September throughout the Caribbean Region. This year it will be celebrated on the 12th of September. The aim is to increase awareness and promote activities to address the epidemic of non-communicable diseases (NCDs), which continues to severely impact the health, economy, and development of the region including the Turks and Caicos Islands.

 

For the past 12 years the overall theme of Caribbean Wellness Day was “Love that body.”  This year the overall theme was changed following consultation with key partners with the view to include the society as a whole. Therefore, the new overall theme for Caribbean Wellness Day is now ‘Power Through Collective Action” with the special theme for this year being “Stronger together.”

 

Hon. Edwin Astwood, Minister of Health Agriculture, Sports and Human Services stated that “While my Ministry is focused on preventative measures to help encourage everyone to make healthier lifestyle choices we need persons to become more serious about making healthy lifestyle changes.”

 

We invite the general public to join us in the activities slated. The activities are as follows:

 

Commencing on the 14th – 18th September 2020, to promote healthy lifestyle behaviors are:

 

14th September – Mental Health Monday take deep conscious breaths today to reduce stress and listen out for the Health Matters Radio Show Live on RTC which will be dedicated to mental health and wellbeing. Tips on how to reduce stress can be found on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/tcihealthpromotions.

15th September – Take a Fruit to Work/School Day Tuesday, we invite you to post your fruit and tag our Facebook page. At 6pm we invite you to join us for a live healthy cooking session with Chef Nick on facebook livehttps://www.facebook.com/tcihealthpromotions.

16th September – Drink Water Wednesday, post your pictures, we want you to show off how much water you drink in a day. Take a picture with your water bottle and tag our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/tcihealthpromotions.

17th September –  join us for our Facebook live aerobics session with Ryesha Higgs from Graceway Sport Centre (Fitness) Thursday https://www.facebook.com/tcihealthpromotions.

18th September – Know your numbers Friday-  we encourage persons get their blood sugar and blood pressure tested.

 

Director of the Health Promotion and Advocacy Unit, Aldora Robinson stated that “We need to pay more attention to the foods that are so easily accessible for example the easy availability of high fat, salt and sugar in food; the heavy advertising of junk food to our children; and very high levels of screen time, watching television and playing games, we must work harder to change these practices as they all contribute to our overall health and wellbeing mentally, physically and spiritually. Let us all make healthier choices in what we eat and drink and let’s get more physically active. Together we can because we are stronger together.”

 

Let us also remember that chronic illnesses which may be influenced by our lifestyles such as diabetes, hypertension, asthma, obesity, cancers and kidney failure can result in poor health outcomes if persons become infected with Covid-19. Practicing healthy habits plays an important role in preventing and controlling chronic non communicable diseases. Proper hygiene is also critical to prevent and control the spread of Covid-19. Call the health hotlines on 2329444or 33309 if you have symptoms of Covid-19 19 or have been in close contact with someone who is known to have Covid-19.
