Liberia: Coalition for Democratic Change Sets Up Special Taskforce Against Coronavirus

Monrovia — The National Executive Committee of the Coalition for Democratic Change (CDC) announces the formation of a Special Taskforce Against the Coronavirus disease, which comes in support of the President's tremendous response to contain & prevent the spread of the deadly pandemic.

The formation of the Taskforce is premised on the CDC's recognition of the need for a collective & unified national action to bolster Government's efforts in keeping our PEOPLE SAFE, SECURED & HEALTHY, a priority that neutralizes all forms of politics & division.

Commissioned to help coordinate services to all Liberians (nationwide) during this period & until the country is officially declared Coronavirus-free, the Taskforce has already begun the free distribution of buckets, chlorine (powder), face mask, gloves, hand soap, hand sanitizers, disinfectants (wipes, gels) & paper towel.

Accompanying this distribution plan is a thorough awareness campaign to inform & educate communities on how Covid-19 can be contained, prevented & exterminated in the shortest possible time when the MOH's published health & hygiene measures are observed.

The Taskforce will accelerate this effort in all fifteen counties, working with & utilizing the services of small units of the CDC District & Zonal structures nationwide, churches, mosques & educational facilities.

In furtherance, the CDC will on Tuesday commence a 24-Hrs #PREVENT_COVID-19 information helpline to bolster GoL efforts in curbing the misinformation surrounding the virus & spread awareness on its prevention, using Whatapps, mobile phone hotlines & the CDC-TV Platform.

Meanwhile, the Taskforce will be Chaired by Partisan Ernest J. Clarke and Co-Chaired by Partisan Alexander Saydee, as the committee functions under the supervision of the party's 'Rural Empowerment & Assistance Program, headed by Hon. Thomas P. Fallah.

The Taskforce's Membership, divided into two groups, Team I & Team II, includes;
