Coronavirus: Zanetor Sensitise Constituents On Preventive Measures
The Member of Parliament for Klottey Korle, Zanetor Rawlings has embarked on an outreach program to educate constituents on how to prevent infection of the novel Coronavirus.

“The coronavirus is here, and we cannot take chances. This week I’ve been touring my constituency sensitizing and providing my constituents with practical tips on how to minimize the risk of exposure to # covid19 . I also supported the Adabraka mosque with some sanitary items. In Klottey Korle, we’re not taking any chances. # TogetherWeBuild,” she posted on social media.
