City launches loud-hailing drive against Covid-19

Johannesburg – City of Joburg departments have launched an awareness campaign to educate the public about lockdown regulations and basic guidelines to prevent the spread of Covid-19.

  City of Joburg Speaker of Council Nonceba Molwele alongside the JMPD and EMS recently launched the civic education vehicle and loud-hailing awareness campaign.

  Molwele said the loud-hailing vehicle will expand civic education across the city, with the focus on sharing corona virus safety messages, especially in densely populated areas.

  She identified the need for such a vehicle based on her own assessment and interaction with stakeholders around the issue of community outreach, to influence behavioural change on Covid-19 while adhering to the regulations, such as social distancing.

 “The programme is facilitated in collaboration with all the ward councillors. The Health and Social Development Department and Public Safety will play a critical role in the implementation of the project,” Molwele said.

  The van is scheduled to conduct weekly Covid-19 and civic education programmes to educate residents.
