Awareness on the COVID-19 pandemic was spread among the people living in India-Myanmar border town Moreh in Manipur with a poster campaign conducted by the Moreh Small Town Committee on Tuesday. The public was made aware about preventive measures against the disease.
The Moreh Small Town Committee led by its co-convenor member ADC Chandel Cecilia Chinneivah Haokip displayed poster templates and distributed the same to community and local leaders.
Speaking to the media, co-convenor of Moreh small town committee, Chinneivah Haokip said the government has extended the lockdown and the public should not neglect and take it lightly.
