Mayor Koijee Turns Over City Hall For Testing And Vaccination As COVID Rages

Monrovia City Mayor Jefferson Koijee has announced that the City Hall of Monrovia will now be used as testing and vaccination center.

This followed a renewed variant of COVID pandemic in the country with Monrovia being the epicenter. The over 1.5 million residents are now panicking as reporters of health facilities being filled beyond capacity.

Hospitals are overwhelmed without beds and the virus is moving deeply into all corridors leaving many families mourning. The situation in the Capital has reached an unprecedented level.

Making the pronouncement Wednesday in Monrovia, Mayor Koijee said ‘As a City Government, we have instructed, with the significant drop in work force at public facilities, that the Monrovia City Hall be used as testing and vaccination center with immediate effect.’

He praised the resilience of Liberians and call on all to wear masks at all times and ensure they and their surroundings are saved.

He continued ‘The City Government will embark on other vigorous means to ensure that wearing of mask is mandatory at all times and all places; watch up for our team near you soon!’

The Monrovia’s mayor said he is working in collaboration with the Ministry of Health, Foreign Affairs and other international partners to ensure the City Hall is well supported with the equipment needed to solve the creeping menace.

Mayor Koijee acknowledged that hospitals and health facilities are stressed by the renewed variant and it is time for all others like him to step to the table and help as done in the past.

National Government has at the same time cut down workforce at all public facilities by 50% due to the severity of the matter.

The nation’s Ministry of Health has since procured more oxygen while the Indian team has also made some donations.
