The former aide to ex President Goodluck Jonathan made the call when he recieved a group of young Anambra student doctors and “Extern” who paid a solidarity visit at his country home at Okija, Yesterday.

Addressing the guests, Nwankpo said that governments should continue to make efforts to increase overall vaccine coverage and lower community transmission, that public health measures remain the foundation of the pandemic response.

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
