Coronavirus (COVID-19) Pandemic is not only ravaging urban areas/cities in developing and developed countries. It also takes its toll on the rural communities. Worst hit are the poor, aged and vulnerable households. To help rural households reduce the spread as well as cushion the effect of the virus, African Human Development Centre (AHDC) undertook an intervention in Akwa Ibom State.
