CALL 4455 (IT'S FREE)
If you have been around anyone tested positive or suspected of having COVID-19 (Coronavirus).
Updated: March 27, 2020
We truly appreciate your contribution to the COVID-19 Response. Attached you will find the list of goods received and the delivery status.
The Liberia Chamber of Commerce is working with the Private Sector Engagement Committee (PSEC) under the National Public Health Institute of Liberia (NPHIL) and the Ministry of Health (MOH). The PSEC was first established during the Ebola outbreak. It was reactivated on March 16, 2020 after the first case of Coronavirus (COVID-19) in Liberia was reported, tested and confirmed. The role of the PSEC is to ensure one coordinated response between public and private sector and, where possible, to mobilize resources – pro-bono services, gift in kind donations, etc.
The PSEC structure consists of the Liberia Chambers of Commerce (GSM companies, Hotel Management, Concessions, etc.), the Healthcare Federation of Liberia (laboratory, private clinics, pharmaceuticals, insurance companies etc.), the Liberian Business Association (Small Business Owners, Liberia Market Association etc..) and Others (Salons, supermarkets, etc..). The PSEC is chaired by the NPHIL/MOH Incident Management System (IMS). The role of the PSEC is to ensure one coordinated response between public and private sector and, where possible, to mobilize resources – pro-bono services, gift in kind donations, etc.
Our understanding of Quarantined Centers is as follow – there are two types:
Precautionary Observation Centers (POCs): there are 9 – consisting of private hotels & B&Bs. This is where people who visited hot zones and low risk contacts.
Treatment/Isolation Center: there are 2 Treatment/Isolation Centers. However only one is currently operating (which is 14 Military Hospital). This is for the confirmed and close contacts (high risk contacts).
The Private Sector Engagement Committee/NPHIL/MoH will provide a list of all Quarantined Centers (a breakdown of the number of people and the immediate needs of each center. In the interim, the Chamber will continue to receive donations of goods in Kind for the Treatment/Isolation Center at 14 Military Hospital.
