WESTERN Provincial Government is closely monitoring the current COVID-19 community transmission and will take further action if the situation changes.
Premier of Western Province, Christian Mesepitu says his executive is currently activating level three standard procedures while monitoring the situation.
“My government will tighten its Health and Public Measures should there be changes on the situation.
“We will work closely with the Provincial Disaster Operation Committee in the effort to stop this virus from further transmission,” he says.
Mesepitu says Western Provincial Government on lockdown if necessary in the days to come.
In the meantime, he says the limited health and medical facilities as well as resources are worrying as such precaution is the best approach that would save lives.
He adds that health system will crumble and that it is important for people to follow instructions with absolute responsibility.
“To my good people of Western Province, please observe safety protocols. Take precaution at all times and respect rules and regulations.
“This is the only way we can contain this virus from further transmission,” Mesepitu says.
He urges people from Western Province to wear mask, carry hand sanitizer and maintain social distancing at all times.
