COVID-19 RESPONSE IN NIGERIA: THE NEED FOR COLLABORATION WITH STATES GOVERNMENT

This is a clarion call to all AMLSN Branch Chairmen and Secretaries to activate a response action to Covid-19 in their various states.

In view of the above, they should:

  1. Liase with the various State Ministries of Health to ensure they are involved in the committees on Covid-19 response.
  2. Articulate an action document to support appropriate use of PPEs by health care providers and robust testing for the virus.
  3. Participate in awareness programmes through jingles on safety measures to prevent community spread of the virus.
  4. Create other initiatives to support the state government arrest the spread of Covid-19 in Nigeria.

The time to close ranks and work together is now, please be at your modest best during engagements.

Be assured of MLSCN continuous support to Covid-19 response in Nigeria.

You have my regards.
