“Over the last few days we have all been inundated with what is happening around the world with COVID-19.
“Although Africa was one of the last regions to be hit, there is still a lot we don’t know and the uncertainty weighs in on all of us.
Our hearts go out to everyone who has been impacted by the virus either directly or indirectly.
“At this point, we know that our first priority must be you and your family’s health and well-being, and we hope you stay safe and healthy. At the same time, our hearts go out to those at the front line: medical staff and caregivers who put themselves at risk to do all it takes to serve others.
“In much the same way, we at Airtel too provide an essential service – keeping our customers and the country connected.
“Therefore, we are doing everything we can to keep our employees and partners safe.
This is so that they can work towards keeping you, your businesses and families connected. We know there is a great responsibility on us as connectivity providers, to do what it takes to make sure everything works at this time of stress.” he said.
