Thanks for mentioning importance of CHWs. In Hammanskraal, we work with CHW on tuberculosis, but now we established a whatsapp group to share government resources on COVID-19 online. This hard to reach/ rural area rely heavily on information from CHWs, so it is good to see recognition of their role thanks Prof!
