COVID-19: Committee Begins Second Round Of Street-To-Street Campaign



Chairman of the Rivers State Government Inter-ministerial Committee on Covid-19 Enlightenment, Pastor Paulinus Nsirim, has charged Volunteers on Covid-19 Mobile Enlightenment to see themselves as persons recruited to save the lives of people in the state.


Giving the charge during the inauguration of the team at the State Secretariat Complex, the chairman charged the members to view their responsibility in the same spirit as the state governor, Nyesom Wike, which, he said, is to save lives.


The chairman, who is also the state commissioner for information and communications, stated that just as the governor’s primary goal this season is to save lives, they should see the awareness creation on coronavirus as their own contribution to save lives in the state.


“You’re a part of the team that will be saving lives, and I pray that God Almighty will help all of you to discharge this duty creditably.


“All of you have been carefully chosen to carry out enlightenment and sensitisation for our state. The task before you is enormous.


“As a state we are recording new cases of coronavirus and the only alternative left for us now is to move from street to street to pass prevention messages to our people.

“You need to let the people know that the virus is with us and that they must practise social distancing, wearing of face mask and maintenance of personal hygiene,” he said.


Nsirim advised that people who have the symptoms of the virus which include dry cough, high temperature, loss of sense of taste, body weakness and difficulty in breathing should seek medical attention.
According to him, people should not be afraid of the symptoms of the disease because it is not a death sentence.


“Our governor has shown the right leadership. In fact, there’s no state in this country where a governor has spearheaded the fight against coronavirus like our governor has done.
“Our governor has committed his time and the resources of the state to make sure that Rivers State is safe,” he added.
