CAPRICORN District Command Council (DCC) was on Tuesday pleased with the progress made by the private sector partnership in water project implementation which is now 100% complete and set to benefit Taaibosch, Sias and Simons communities in Blouberg, while Kromhoek is 95% complete.
This is in addition to the 192 Jojo tanks that were delivered across the District to augment the supply of water and the 263 water tankering loads that were delivered to schools in the fight against Covid-19.
The DCC was also pleased with progress made in compliance monitoring, particularly in schools and churches and noted that 129 schools and 249 churches were visited to monitor their compliance to the regulations. However, the DCC expressed concern that funerals remain high risk areas as mourners are no longer taking safety precautions and cautioned that this could be the reason why Polokwane remains a hotspot in the District.
So far 1,639 community awareness campaigns were conducted by the Environmental Health Practitioners to encourage people to observe safety protocols and protect themselves against the virus.
The DCC meeting also reflected on the number of Gender-Based Violence incidents as well as motor vehicle accidents and resolved to use the imbizos this week to express disdain and raise awareness.
