COVID-19 has persisted for a considerable period. Unless the current international efforts at producing vaccines succeed now, the pandemic may remain longer than expected. Over a period, governments at different levels in Nigeria have used different communication strategies aimed at reducing the spread of the virus. The efforts include stemming the tide towards community spread. This study reviews the responsiveness of the populace in two Anambra Communities to the hand washing campaign earlier instituted as a prelude to the fight to flatten the Covid-19 incidence curve in the State. The study adopted the triangulation method of data gathering and analysis. Focus group discussion was used to close up gaps in analytical data gathering, with a pilot sample of 20. The study assessed the level of diffusion of hand washing campaign in Igbariam and Achalla communities of Anambra State. Part of the objective is to (1) find out factors responsible for the level of success or failure of the campaign in the said communities (2) provide futuristic recommendations as a standard for flattening COVID-19 curve and similar health situations in Anambra State. Findings show that there is an unavailability of running tap water system in one of the communities. Government-built boreholes are no longer functioning as respondents get water from an alternative but an unhealthy source. While there was a fair supply of power to one of the communities, the other had none which affects the reception of communication messages. It is therefore recommended that messages that are targeted at residents in a highly rural community should not be passed through electronic media of communication alone. An integrated approach which includes the traditional media like the town crier should also be used. For instance, too, religious leaders should be used to convey such messages to their congregation periodically.
