Australian support for COVID-19 data monitoring

Saturday, 7 March 2020

On 5 March 2020, the Australian Government in partnership with UNICEF Sri Lanka delivered four laptops to the Disaster Preparedness and Response Division (DPRD) of the Ministry of Health and Indigenous Medical Services to support Sri Lanka’s ongoing monitoring of COVID-19.

The equipment will be used by the DPRD officials and volunteers to input data from international passenger arrival cards to be shared with the island-wide network of health officials, for disease surveillance.
