“That means our people must continue to rigidly wash their hands regularly, wipe their hands with sanitizer, maintain social distancing, wear facemasks, avoid handshakes, and observe the lockdown order introduced by the state government.

“These are responsibilities which every individual must accept as their own contribution to the effort of the government to protect them against the pandemic.”
