Declaring the coronavirus a public health emergency of international concern would allow WHO to better coordinate and help fund the international response. What does this mean for Aruba? The local situation remains the same, but the preparedness level has been elevated, enabling a more pro-active response system in the event suspicious cases emerge. This also means that the screening process should be stringent in order to detect suspicious cases in time. As of today, Aruba has not registered any suspicious cases and will certainly provide regular updates if anything changes.
