TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI)- Tippecanoe County leaders are encouraging citizens to educate themselves about the spread of COVID-19. They are asking that citizens watch a YouTube video they have pinned to the top of their Facebook page.
The video shows how a pandemic starts, and why the importance of flattening the curve is vital to saving lives. It makes comparisons of the COVID-19 outbreak to the 1918 flu.
Smokey Anderson the Director of the Tippecanoe County Emergency Management Agency says this information is important to get out to the public.
“It's good information in this time to see how things happen and the messages show that this is what we are trying to avoid from happening by putting these practices in place,” said Anderson.
County leaders hope that all citizens will watch the video to educate themselves about this pandemic. To watch the video, click here.
