Reporting positive contribution of volunteering to the SDGs
Paragraph 1, page 14
One of the first measures adopted was the isolation of sick people and their compulsory hospitalization, as well as that of suspected persons and/or contacts, as a prevention and epidemiological control measure. A number of ‘isolation centres’ were set up throughout the country, which used State insurance and the participation of volunteers from workplaces, the education sector and the community. Isolation and compulsory hospitalization were implemented from the outset and quarantine was established for areas where outbreaks of positive cases were identified.
