Tubah Mayor steps up sensitisation against COVID-19

Mayor Tanjong hands face masks to population 

The Mayor of Tubah, Tanjong Martin has increased sensitisation against the coronavirus as the second wave records more deaths

In an interaction with the population of Bambili market, the Mayor noted that he does not want anyone to die in his subdivision again from the virus

"My aim is to ensure that the population of the Municipality is safe. We are handing to them preventive kits like hand sanitizers, soap, face masks, tap buckets and thermo flashes" Mayor Tanjong remarked

During the outbreak of the virus in Cameroon in March 2020, the council embarked on massive disinfection and provision of preventive kits to the four villages that make up Tubah. 

The Mayor called on the population to like never before respect the barrier measures put in place by the Government of Cameroon and the world health organization

"Avoid overcrowded areas, respect social distances, wear your face masks always and wash your hands regularly with soap"

The visit of the Mayor and his deputies to the Bambili market also gave way for free testing of the population. This he says is a way to curb the spread of the coronavirus

Listening to the council executive, Boris Mingo, a student of the University of Bamenda called on all and sundry to go for voluntary testing as a means to stop the spread of the virus. 

"They test is irritating to the nostrils but not painful. It is better for it irritate you than for you to contract and live with the virus. I wish to encourage everyone to get tested as a way to safe their lives and those of their families". 

Boris further recommended that people should move around with hand sanitizers as a preventive measure. 

Test kits available 

As the testing goes on, those who will test positive will go into isolation.
