This was revealed by the vice-president on service cluster, Hussein Abdelbaggi Akol, who is also the chairperson of the national taskforce on COVID-19.

“I have chaired a meeting of the National taskforce that endorsed dispatching a technical team to ten states plus three administrative areas to conduct covid-19 awareness campaign and prevention,” Hussein wrote on his Facebook page.

“The team set to travel in a few days will carry along assortment of covid-19 items to be given out to hospitals in states for fighting covid-19 pandemic. The meeting also underscored several issues surrounding covid-19 pandemic.
