He said “Community transmission of COVID-19 continues in many areas across Nigeria, and new variants of concern have been identified and are circulating. Efforts should be made to protect yourself and others”.

Nwankpo thanked the state government and public health authorities for the huge success story Anambra state has recorded since the pandemic. He, however, urged the state government to continue to make public health decisions, adjust restrictions depending on COVID-19 activity in the state.

“To prevent and reduce the spread of COVID-19, governments should continue to apply public health measures in communities and settings where people gather. We should intensify the awareness and sensitization campaign, especially, now the state is embarking on  electioneering campaigns. Let’s think ahead about the actions we can take to stay healthy, prevent the spread of COVID-19”. He said
