National Association of Community Health Practitioners of Nigeria Kaduna state chapter has appealed to federal and Kaduna state governments to provide them with personal protective equipment to ensure their safety as a support against the spread of Covid-19.
Kaduna state Chairman of the association, Comrade Ibrahim Lawal Kubau, made the appeal on Friday in an interactive session with newsmen in Kaduna.
According to Comrade Ibrahim, the association embarked on sensitisation campaigns against the spread of Covid-19 in the rural areas in the state.
Comrade Ibrahim said, “the campaign focused on hand wash, coughing into a tissue, sneezing by elbow among others. The campaigns would be on daily basis until Coronavirus is eradicated in Nigeria”.
He urged residents particularly at grassroots to observe government’s directive on Covid-19 and report any suspected case to the appropriate authority.
The association prayed for quick recovery for Kaduna state Governor, Malam Nasir el-Rufai, and others who have tested positive for the virus.
