PM creates Whats App group for news on coronavirus

The Office of the Prime Minister (OPM) has created a Whats App hotline for citizens who wish to get the latest news and updates from the Office.

Citizens can also get information from the Ministry of Health about the Government’s fight against the spread of the Coronavirus.

For all the latest news and updates, citizens are asked to message the word “Hello” via WhatsApp to 689-3364 for further instructions.

Citizens can also follow the Office of the Prime Minister and the Ministry of Health on Facebook for updates. 

The Prime Minister will host a press conference at 11:00a.m on Monday to update the country on coronavirus.
