“I saw him at about 6pm yesterday. He was explaining his condition and we were taking some new data from him,” he said.

“He’s in an isolation room all by himself and we had moved him into a particular room because we were doing a general overhaul of the whole facility because we want to be ready.

“There were some discomforts in terms of heat, but about 9pm we moved him over to the renovated facility which has lots of air conditioners, fans and it’s a 28-bed brand new facility, and he’s there on his own in the whole ward and as of 6am this morning I’m told he’s comfortable.”

According to the commissioner, they started renovations last week and now have 100-bed capacity.

He said, “We’ve been building a biosecurity unit that includes advanced diagnostic capacity. We’ve been building isolation wards which have special airflow dynamics. ”
