While communication through SMS is a key part of our #COVID19 response strategy, this has been largely provided as in-kind support by @AirtelNigeria @MTNNG @GloWorld

#TakeResponsibility"

During this pandemic let's do all to support NCDC and healthcare workers who are risking their lives and the well-being of the families to rid the nation of Covid 19.


Avoid spreading fake and unverified news on the pandemic, stay safe, keep washing your hands , maintain a safe social distance & hygiene. In the end we will overcome!
