UNICEF plans against COVID-19 spread in Borno

The United Nations Children’s Fund has moved to prevent coronavirus pandemic from spreading into Borno State with a promise to provide necessary tools for communities in the North East state.

The United Nations agency also trained education facilitators in the sensitisation of communities on the importance of hygiene practices and continuing learning at home during crises.

The training, which focused on humanitarian response to the COVID-19 pandemic, equipped the facilitators with information and materials to effectively educate communities on the need to prevent communicable diseases with simple hygiene practices as well as the adverse effects of protracted school closure on girls and vulnerable children.

Speaking during the training on Wednesday, the Education Manager, UNICEF Borno Field Office, Dr Nasser Kaddoura, said parents and guardians had a role to play in ensuring that children learn how to wash their hands properly with soap and running water and continue studying while at home during crises.
