By Aaron Humes: CEO in the Ministry of Human Development and co-chair of the COVID-19 National Task Force, Judith Alpuche detailed some operational details of the coming state of emergency.
An Emergency Operation Center will be established for monitoring of the state of emergency.
Not every worker, even in her own department, according to Alpuche, is essential and passes will be given by the EOC.
For instance, the Department is braced for increases in cases of gender-based violence and that will require direct response.
A special hotline number for the EOC will be established to field questions and report concerns, though “snitching”, as Alpuche termed it, is not encouraged.
Companies and government offices have or are being asked to set up remote services to continue work, but this is not a holiday and work does continue.
CEO Alpuche asked to reframe the discussion as a national effort to protect ourselves and those we love and to spend more time with them.
“To me, the most patriotic thing we can do right now is to adhere to this state of emergency,” Alpuche concluded.
