Khomas Region Governor, Laura McLeod-Katjirua has urged the communities within the region and the entire country to avoid misguided perceptions of COVID-19 and rather focus on preventive measures, explaining that after the state of emergency was lifted, there has been various misleading information going around on social media and within communities, that there will be a second wave of COVID-19 in the ‘new normal’. McLeod-Katjirua also condemned gender-based violence and the violation of human rights against women, young girls and vulnerable members of the Khomas Region community.
