A week to Christmas, the President advices each individual to follow the Covid-19 protocols to protect themselves and others as they hold festive parties and gatherings.
He also advised people with medical issues such as asthma, hypertension, etc. to pay attention to their health during the festive season.
“The dynamics of the virus has taught us that, if you must host or attend such events, they are best held safely outdoors or in very well-ventilated halls, rather than in closed, air-conditioned spaces.
“Even when organised outdoors, there must be adequate spacing for the maintenance of social distancing. Organisers of such events, public or private, should ensure the presence of ‘Veronica’ buckets, soap and sanitisers, and must insist that patrons use them as frequently as possible,” he said.
Also, the countries borders, land and sea is still remained closed till further notice.
