Madam Veronica Alele Heming , the District Chief Executive for Bole District has distributed face masks and hand sanitisers to identifiable groups in the District.
Madam Veronica handed over boxes of face masks and sanitisers to the leadership of Churches, Mosques, lorry terminals and markets.
The donation formed part of efforts by the Assembly to encourage adherence to the COVID-19 safety protocols amid the increasing cases of the disease.
It also sought to intensify public education on the viral disease by promoting behavioural change in practices that serve as fertile grounds for infections.
Madam Veronica said the Assembly had provided Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) to both health workers and the general public to contain the spread of the disease since the outbreak of the pandemic last year.
She said it was necessary to intensify public education campaigns, following the rising cases in the last few months.
“We are providing these PPE to encourage the people to observe the protocols which are very key to the fight against the virus,” he told the media at a presentation.
He encouraged them to use the PPE to collectively win the war against the pandemic.
The DCE urged the Clergy and Muslim leaders to encourage their congregations to take the safety protocols seriously to protect themselves and their families.
Madam Veronica said the government was committed to defeating the virus but the success of the fight largely depended on the attitude of the people to the preventive protocols.
She said Ghana was among the countries that had properly managed the pandemic in the world since the outbreak and called on the people to complement the government efforts to contain the virus.
Meanwhile a stakeholder meeting was held on 18th February, 2021, to engage the public on adhering to covid-19 protocols as the new variant of the virus is in Ghana.
Speaking at the meeting, the Member of Parliament, Hon. Yusif Sulemana (Ori), underscored the need for the general public to continue to follow the covid-19 protocols in the wake of the second wave of the virus.
For his side, the District Director of Health, Mr. David Bakuri admonished the people of Bole to be wary of cerebral spinal minigitis as the warm season has set in and also urged Ghanaians in general to keep observing covid-19 protocols to limit its spread.
