Recently, communities in Central Kwara’ae requested continued updates to the current covid-19 situation.

“Awareness program is an integral part of the current covid-19 operation to reach out to communities and inform them about covid-19 or the current situation.
“Sometimes we received invitation for awareness from communities and responded while we also provide awareness to communities with high covid-19 cases.
“The awareness programme is important to empower people to understand what to do amidst the current situation,” Maukera said.
