Mliswa launches COVID-19 isolation centre for Norton

NORTON Member of the House of Assembly Temba Mliswa (INDEPENDENT) has launched his constituency’s own COVID-19 isolation center and donated US$1,000 towards the purchase of essential products and equipment to galvanize the constituency’s state of preparedness.

The town’s isolation center is to be based at the Norton Vocational Training Centre in Katanga while the Norton Town Council (NYC) made available a secondary school in Katanga as a possible back-up facility.

Mliswa also launched a 14-member task force to handle the coronavirus issues as well as liaise with national authorities in enforcing the 21-day national lockdown requirements, among other tasks.

“Pursuant to my earlier communication to you all and correspondence to Norton Town Council (NTC) regarding the potential threat of COVID-19, I am pleased to update you that NTC has been extremely forthcoming,” Mliswa said to members of the task force.

“The task force has already identified an isolation center at the Norton Vocational Training Centre in Katanga and a secondary school in Katanga as a possible back-up facility.”

The 14-member task force would be responsible for observing the situation and managing the COVID-19 outbreak in the constituency.

Due to the lockdown, the team will communicate electronically and look forward to mobilizing resources to channel towards equipping the identified screening and treatment sites.
