Luanda- The Luanda MPLA Committee is raising awareness against the SARS-Cov-2 virus in its grassroots structures, with a view to spreading the message to communities.

Over the last eight days, members of the executive committee of the ruling party provincial committee in Angola have been visiting neighbourhoods in the municipalities of Viana and Cacuaco.

The awareness campaign, part of the "M em Movimento" programme, is led by its first secretary, Joana Lina.

Speaking to Angop, the itinerant secretary of the provincial committee, Bento dos Santos, highlighted the continued engagement of militants, friends and supporters of the party in raising awareness in the communities about the care against the new coronavirus.
