ISLAMABAD – The National Command and Operation Centre (NCOC) on Thursday announced the launch of the national Test, Track and Quarantine (TTQ) strategy devised for effective containment of the Covid-19 pandemic, underlining that it is looking to build on the past successes of the state.
The NCOC, during its meeting with Minister for Planning, Development, and Special Initiatives Asad Umar, resolved to implement the national strategy during the ongoing week, while looking to add to the containment strategies that have rendered positive results for the state.
“In this regard, we can’t look beyond the Taliban, and how they have been successfully used by the state for containment within and outside our borders,” Asad Umar was told, sources privy to the meeting have informed The Dependent.
“That is why we have decided to name this strategy as TTQ, which is a level, and alphabet, up on the TTP,” the minister was further informed.
The National TTQ Strategy is aimed at collecting blood, tracking and quarantining, which too will bank on the successes from the past, the meeting was informed.
Asad Umar directed to improve the mechanism of incorporating the details of suspects into the database.
“While TTP helped us come to power, TTQ will help us stay in power,” Umar vowed.
