“We have teams schedule to man our checkpoints for 6 hours and they rotate. This is to ensure that our village is safe from the virus that is now beginning to enter our province. We encourage those that go to the Sawani border to be careful. This is also a main area that we are looking at.”

Cikaitoga says most of the village youth are part of the border control team supporting the fight against the killer virus.
