He said the new provincial covid-19 centre at Aligegeo has completed and ready for operation.
“With regards to our preparation so far, we will scale-up work on certain areas identified during the recent situation in the province that need improvement.
“We will communicate and work with responsible stakeholders on those areas soon as we continue to strengthening covid-19 preparation for the province.
“And areas of work will come out after our meeting and information on them will pass on to health centres, stakeholders and communities in the province,” Koto said.
The PDOC chair urged the general public of the province to resume all covid-19 measures and practices they once observed as covid-19 is resurging in the country.
He called on people to put-up face-mask, observe social distancing, hand-washing, sanitizing and try to limit movements as they will put up measures on that area.
Koto said lot of countries had severe experiences with their second wave of covid-19, and people are strongly urged to take all required precautions as another wave is forthcoming for the country.
