THE SENSITIZATION EXERCISE OF CORRECTIONAL OFFICERS ON COVID-19 AND THE DONATION OF PERSONAL PROTECTIVE EQUIPMENT
In the first week of May, we started a campaign to provide preventive gears for Inmates and Correctional Officers, with sponsorship from Misean Cara and Ireland Embassy in Nigeria. We are glad to commence an intervention which trains correctional Officers on preventive measures, detection and management of COVID-19, as well as, provide necessary PPEs to Correctional Facilities in Nigeria. Stay tuned to #CAPIO this week for more updates.
We started our training today in Nsukka Correctional Facility, with testing the knowledge of 75 Correctional Officers on COVID-19, then proceeded with training on necessary hygiene and preventive measures, through the participatory process; addressed misconceptions surrounding COVID-19, taught Officers present when to use and how to effectively measure 0.05 and 0.5 of disinfectants for surface cleaning, among several others.
