Abdelah Alifnur Mohammed, Yosef Gebremichael
COVID-19 is one of the most shocking tragedies that impacted the world. It resulted in crisis in health care, socio-economic and political aspects. Ethiopia faced the onset of the crisis with clear strength. It had an excellent long term track record of economic growth, major improvements in infrastructure, poverty reduction and social development (United Nation Ethiopia, 2020). However, the threat posed by the pandemic in tandem with inter-communal conflicts was assumed to overwhelm the existing strength and capacity of the country. Thus, the country had to take measures to counter and reduce the devastating effects of the pandemic. Covid-19 emergency rules that required a partial lockdown were issued and implemented throughout the country including Woreta. They consist of movement restriction, border closure, restriction of social gatherings, physical distancing, quarantine and isolation, business closure and temporary suspension of secondary or non-critical governmental services etc.
