The Kano State Ministry of Health in collaboration with the World Health Organisation (WHO) have organised a sensitisation workshop for media operators in the state as part of efforts to nip the second wave of COVID-19 in the bud.

The workshop organised Saturday brought  together over 30 journalists across the state who were extensively briefed, sensitised and updated on the second wave of the virus and how to fight it through the media.

The Public Enlightenment Officer and Member of Kano State Task Force Committee on COVID-19, Auwal Abdu Fagge, said the exercise was part of efforts to tackle the scourge of the disease in the state.

“This workshop is meant to train media personnel as key stakeholders in the fight and to equip them with the latest facts regarding the COVID-19 response in Kano as well as the preparation being made in tackling the second wave of COVID-19 in the state,” he said

He added that the training became necessary in view of the critical role the media play in the fight against such diseases and especially in sensitizing and creating awareness among the populace.

Fagge who stated that the disease was still killing human beings and the number of cases still rising assured that the state would continue to train journalists as well as other stakeholders quarterly in order to change people’s behaviour towards the disease
