The West Gonja Municipal Assembly in collaboration with the Municipal Health Directorate has begun a campaign to educate residents of the area on the deadly COVID-19 to prevent its spread.

The communities sensitised so far included Larabanga and Busunu where religious leaders and chiefs were educated on the disease.

Hajia Fuseina Sulemana, West Gonja Municipal Director of Health, who spoke during the sensitisation exercise in the two communities, took the leaders through the symptoms and preventive measures of the virus.

She advised them to report any suspected case to the nearest health facility without delay.

Mr Saeed Muhazu Jibril, West Gonja Municipal Chief Executive, advised them to adhere to the President's directives and also educate their members to avoid the spread of the disease in their areas.

Mr Jibril, earlier, met with stakeholders including religious leaders, traditional rulers and managers of public transport in the area to discuss with them the President's directives to combat the disease and the need for them to abide by them.
