Again, the President appealed to the people to comply with preventive measures such as social distancing, washing hands several times a day with soap or ash and water, cough etiquette and wearing a mask in public areas.
A lot is to be done in the markets, bus stops and funerals. The President recommends the enforcement of the measures and strengthening inspection.
