“The only antidote against COVID-19 is to obey all government and health officials’ precautionary measures.

He also described the pandemic, “as real and that which presents danger and requires caution.”

The deputy governor assured the people that, “the government is determined to flatten the curve of coronavirus and curb community transmission,” the statement added.
