The immediate past Supervisor for Health, Ika South Local Government Council in Delta State, Mr Lucky Omorojie, has called on school managers, both private and public, to take precautionary measures to curb the outbreak of the second wave of COVID-19.
Omorojie stated this in a chat with newsmen shortly after inspecting some schools in the local government area.
He disclosed that some of the schools he visited had some level of preparedness in place.
“Some schools I visited had some level of preparedness in place, but many schools did not meet up. However, they promised to make up,” he said.
Omorojie, who is also the Director General of Grass Roots Initiative Ambassadors, said that it was cheaper to prevent than cure the ailment.
While urging governments at all levels and all relevant agencies to intensify and sustain sensitisation on COVID-19, he urged parents and care givers to provide precautionary materials such as face mask for their wards.
“Let us help ourselves to reduce cost and burden on government. We are really experiencing trying times in the world today. That is the reason all hands must be on deck to defeat this dreaded disease, by among others, seeking the face of God and soliciting for his intervention,” he added.
