The Ministry of Social Welfare, Relief and Resettlement held online training for Community COVID Volunteer (CCV) to involve in the community-based COVID-19 prevention and control activities of Yangon Region yesterday.
Union Minister Dr Win Myat Aye, in his capacity as the Secretary of the National Volunteer Leading Body, said the country has been facing the second wave of COVID-19 since August 2020.
Although the infection and death rates in regions and states, including Yangon Region decline, the virus outbreak is still occurring. All should make protections not to occur the third wave after the second one.
The Union Minister also discussed COVID-19 vaccination plans and cooperation work between the government and public to carry out the protective activities in the long run.
He also stressed the need to cooperate with the youth committee members from respective wards/villages, women committee members, Red Cross Society and volunteering groups, as well as to conduct training programmes to produce Community COVID Volunteer (CCV).
He then discussed the duties of villages/wards volunteers to raise the public awareness on COVID-19, to inform the officials if someone is supposed to have symptoms of the disease and to cooperate in educating programmes and vaccination plans.
The Union Minister also said the first training was conducted on 12 January for 105 volunteers of Mandalay while the second one for 97 volunteers of Yangon Region on 14 January and today’s training for another 130 volunteers of Yangon.
The lists of trainees will be sent to their respective village/ward administrators and health departments when they complete the training. The move aims to offer effective measures for the people by connecting with the volunteers, civil society organizations and departments concerned.
Gathering the Community COVID Volunteers will be a supportive measure to develop the socio-economic status of the residents.
Then, Vice-President of Myanmar Medical Association Professor Dr Mya Thida briefed the training, and other officials coordinated the discussion. —MNA (Translated by Khine Thazin Han)
