Paragraph 1, page 188

So far people-centered response by the Government have received a positive feedback from the population. The Government was publishing regular data on the COVID-19 outbreak and conducting a commendable state public awareness campaign about risks, supporting a strong policy response. It included providing hourly updates, debunking rumors and false information through official social media channels. Interaction with citizens through official communication channels and community institutions played a critical role in the response process. There were joint efforts of citizens and government to reduce transmission of infection and enhance recovery. Volunteer groups of citizens joined the law-enforcement agencies to provide logistics support and care for vulnerable households. The government secured supporting religious and community leaders to help ensure policy physical distance, as well as to support the detection process and detection of diseases.
