Medical personnels used loud speakers to sensitise the population of the Municipality at City Chemist as to what they should do to keep safe

"Wear your face mask before leaving the house. If you have your mask on and I have my mask on, we respect the 1.5 metre distance, we cannot carry the virus. Use hand sanitizers to disinfect your hand when you touch any surface or money. Avoid touching your face, avoid crowded areas"

Fake hand sanitizers were also discouraged by the medical team who advised that it should be acquired only from recommended pharmacies and must contain 96% ethanol

The public sensitisation comes barely two weeks after the council distributed sanitary kits to quarter heads of the four villages( Mbatu, Nsongwa, Chomba and Mankon) that make up the subdivision

Bamenda currently has a single case of the COVID-19
