The Chairman of Warri South-West Local Government, Hon. Taiye Duke Tuoyo, has called on the people of Warri South-West and organisations operating in the Local Government Area to take proactive steps to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

The Chairman said this Friday, 28th March during the flag-off of a Sensitization Campaign against the Corona Virus.

He said that the COVID 19 Virus is spread by close contact with someone coughing or sneezing and by handshakes.
