DEDZA-(MaraviPost)-Malawi Health Equity Network (MHEN) has urged people in the country to continue adhering to Covid-19 precautionary measures despite the country recording a decrease in cases of the pandemic.

MHEN finance manager Ulemu Bakali made the plea in Dedza district on the sidelines of a two day training for health care workers which was aimed at equipping them with knowledge on how to prevent further spread of the pandemic.

Bakali among others observed laxity in observing the precautionary measures citing the need for front line health care providers as well as communities to be targeted with the skills.

“Having a reflection of the cases from other countries, we see that the cases are resurfacing. This can have a negative bearing on the country as a lot people in the communities seem to have stopped following the preventive measures that were set by the government. I would therefore like to appeal to Malawians to continue observing the rules,” said Bakali.

He added that it is important for health care workers to keep in check all levels of preparedness in a quest to avoid resurrection of the cases.

“We organised this training to equip these front line health care providers with knowledge on how they can prevent further spread of the pandemic,” he added.

One of the participants Midess Mtenje who is a ward attendant at Dedza District Hospital hailed the training describing it as an eye opener amidst Covid19.

Osisa has injected a tune of MK110, 250, 000 for MHEN to train health care workers from six districts of Dedza, Lilongwe, Mchinji, Ntcheu, Mzimba and Blantyre.
