According to the official, who was speaking during a meeting with representatives of different local churches, he said it was imperative to strengthen the measures, given the four suspected cases of this pandemic in the province.

In addition to stressing the need to strengthen measures such as physical/social distancing, the use of face masks, frequent hand washing with water and soap or disinfecting them with alcohol gel, he urged the churches to continue helping the government to train new men, build schools and health centres, moralise society, as well as raise awareness among citizens about respect for life.

He stressed that the representatives of each religious congregation should work with zeal and dedication to prevent the pandemic from spreading within Lunda Sul.
