The Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development (MLGRD) has supplied the Bole District Assembly with various hand-washing and sanitation kits to boost efforts at controlling the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
The items included Veronica buckets with stands, sanitisers, packs of tissues, liquid soap and among others.
The District Chief Executive (DCE), Madam Veronica Alele Heming said that the supplies from the MLGRD bore ample testimony to the seriousness the assembly and the government attached to the measures adopted to control the spread of the virus.
She said that it was gratifying to note that the public education efforts on measures to prevent the spread of the virus were making “noteworthy waves.”
Veronica said that the hand-washing kits would be placed at vantage points in the District for public use to curb the spread of the virus.
The DCE however, asked of the MP and the NPP Parliamentary candidate and other individuals who have already distributed items for the public to provide to her the areas that they have already distributed so that distributing these ones will not cause duplication,she noted.
Ghana’s covid-19 cases as at today is 313 with 6 reported deaths.
