Members of the public speak of a fever epidemic in the country instead of realizing the spread of Covid-19.

"There is not an epidemic of fever per se, but there is no doubt that there is an epidemic of COVID-19, one of the signs of which is an increase in body temperature (fever). As said and repeated, the fever is one of the signs still looked to determine the risks that a person is infected by the new Coronavirus (COVID-19) and as soon as the person presents a fever we advise him ipso facto quarantine … ”, Informed the Nouvelliste the director-general of the Ministry of Public health.

"Remember," added Dr. Lauré Adrien, "the first thing you do to control people is taking the temperature." It is therefore obvious that there is a link between high temperature and COVID-19 in this pandemic context. "

"It is, therefore, an obligation for anyone who finds a fever to refer to the system for an assessment and follow-up appropriate to their case. We must (will) quickly strengthen the measures to protect staff in the triage rooms of certain health institutions and encourage the population to change their behavior while respecting the individual and collective protection measures (wearing a mask, frequent washing in the hand soap, physical distancing) to be examined at a health post which will determine if the fever should be considered as a sign of another disease or if there is a potential link with COVID-19 and in this last case take the necessary measures, "announced the Director-General of the Ministry of Public Health.
