The Executive Director of the National Disaster Management Agency (NDMA), Henry Williams, wants the Incident Management Team ensure that the coronavirus is contained in Liberia.

Mr. Williams said the clusters must be supportive of the heath team to effectively carry out its functions to include the provision of shelters, food, and security, as well as tracing, tracking, and quarantining individuals.

Speaking Tuesday in an ELBC interview in Liberia’s second largest city of Paynesville, the NDA Executive Director stressed the need for health authorities to strengthen surveillance at all accessible land and water entry points.

He, however, called on both Liberians and other residents across the Country to report to health authorities anyone entering their communities from other countries considered as epic centers of the coronavirus and sick persons who is ignoring seeking medication at health facilities.

Meanwhile, the NDMA Executive Director, Henry Williams, is underscoring the need for more support to the WASH Commission as Liberia strives to contain the Coronavirus.

Mr. Williams urged Liberians to abide by health regulations to stay safe and lauded the Liberia’s Chief Executive, George Weah, for his prompt reaction to the virus outbreak ensuring that precautionary measures are instituted to save the state.
