The Council Chief further disclosed that his administration, through the Council’s environmental health department has embarked on disinfecting public places in the LCDA, with emphasis on markets and motor parks and other major areas.
He urged people of the LCDA to adhere strictly to government’s directives on regular hand washing and use of sanitisers, keeping social distance and staying at home, which he said is for their own interest.
