The Government through Ministry of Health has extended dates for the commencement of Wave 3 of National Mosquito Net Distribution. The Wave 3 ‘Under The Net Campaign’ was due to start from 25th October to November 5th but it has now been further and will start on 1st November to 13t November.
Dr. Opigo of Ministry of Health has COVID-19 related delays have impacted shipping, port handling, trucking and customs handling and this is why period was extended.
“I wish also to update you that wave 3 has been moved ahead by one week. The COVID-19 related delays has impacted shipping, port handling, trucking and customs handling. Though we now have enough nets at NMS, we needed additional one more week for NDA to complete quality tests so that we are sure of the quality of nets we shall give the community. Many thanks and great weekend,” Dr. Opigo said.
