The Bole District National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) in collaboration with the Bole District Assembly and DAWA Academy, has intensified Public education on Covid-19 in all the communities in the District.
The ongoing exercise is aimed at promoting public compliance with Covid-19 protocols as part of efforts to contain the spread of coronavirus pandemic in Ghana.
Bole District Director of the NCCE, Mr. Ebo Koomson said, in an interview with Yagbon News said that, the District has been divided into four strategic zones to enable the Commission reach out to as many communities as possible.
At least, 62 communities have been reached with education on Covid-19, with a call on residents to support Government efforts on the pandemic.
Mr Ebo pleaded with the citizens not to panic but rather maintain social distancing and practice personal hygiene while staying home.
“visit the nearest health centre if you suspect a case in your area or you experience a dry cough, fever, tiredness, nasal congestion, runny nose, sore throat or diarrhoea and difficulty in breathing and avoid contact with other persons,” the NCCE Director stressed.
The NCCE team also paid courtesy calls on the Chief of Sonyo and other traditional authorities, Churches and carried out public education on selected apprenticeship shops well as markets and lorry terminals.
Mr. Ebo indicated that the message on covid-19 is been spread to the people through all the various local languages in the District.
Border towns were also not left out in the education drive.
The team’s next destination is Jama and it’s surrounding communities.
The NCCE Director indicated that the Commission is poised to cover all the communities in the district as he praised government for given the Commission a brand new pick which has boosted their activities of public sensitization in the wake of covid-19.
