//Kharas governor Aletha Frederick has stressed the importance of wearing face masks in public spaces in an effort to contain the spread of the Covid-19 pandemic.
“It is imperative to wear face masks at all times in the public space as part of the ongoing fight against the invincible enemy Covid-19,” she said at the handing over of masks to patients at Keetmanshoop State Hospital on Friday.
Small and medium-sized entrepreneurs manufactured the masks with material donated by the industrialisation and trade ministry.
Frederick lauded the empowerment of //Kharas SMEs through the donation of the material that enabled them to produce the masks they can sell to the public at an affordable price.
