These actions include the establishment of quarantine centers and expanding the health care facilities to meet any sudden increase of COVID-19 infected patients. Actions have been undertaken to organize essential healthcare facilities, supporting logistics, and food distribution with maximum “social distancing” initiatives being given the high priority.
