Covid19: MTN Promotes Advocacy Gives Free Update On Pandemic
In the wake of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, several organizations as part of their social responsibility have engaged one form of education or the other on the virus.
One of such is MTN, a mobile network provider in the Nigeria telecommunication space who has deemed it fit to promote advocacy in this direction.
Her recent public advocacy explaining what the virus is all about reads:

Coronavirus spreads via droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes and their droplets lands in the mouth or noses of nearby people.
