Mr Kwame Governs Agbodza, the Member of Parliament for Adaklu in the Volta Region Monday reiterated the need for concerted efforts to overcome the Coronavirus pandemic.

He therefore called on the citizenry to support government’s efforts at tackling the virus, saying “we are in this together.”

Mr Agbodza said this when he presented assorted items to the Adaklu District Health Directorate in the Volta Region to fight the spread of the virus.

The items included; 10 sets of Veronica buckets, 1,000 pieces of nose masks, tissues, packs of liquid soaps, 11 Non-Contact Thermometers with batteries, and M3 face masks.

The MP also donated a cash of GHC 1, 000.00 each to the District Health Directorate and the District Health Rapid Response Team, and GHC 200.00 each to all health facilities in the District to support efforts towards the District not recording any Coronavirus case.

He said the items would not automatically prevent the virus if people failed to adhere to the World Health Organization’s safety health protocols of social distancing, washing hands regularly with soap under running water, and avoiding social gatherings among others.

Mr Agbodza commended the District Assembly for the support they also gave to the Health Directorate to assist them to fight the spread of the disease and urged the Directorate to ensure proper maintenance of the items and put them to good use.

Madam Christiana Attachey, Public Health Officer, In-Charge of Disease Control at the Directorate was grateful to the MP for the support, saying the items arrived at the right time as they were running out of stock.
