Marcos Nhunga said that the border separation between the municipality of Necuto and the DRC is only the Chiloango River, so the traditional authorities and the population have a key role in this phase of the Covid-19 pandemic.

"We have to take measures to prevent Covid-19, to mitigate the possibility of contagion at the level of the municipality of Necuto," he said.

The commune of Necuto, in the municipality of Buco-Zau, is about 100 kilometers (62 miles) northwest of Cabinda and has the second largest border market in the province. It borders the DRC across the Chiloango River.
