Cameroon’s Head of State Paul Biya has authorised the creation of a Coronavirus response national solidarity fund to go operational in the days ahead to help in the fight against the pandemic which continue to wreak havoc worldwide.
The information was announced by the Minister of Public Health, Dr Malachie Manouda during yesterday’s daily press briefing.
This national solidarity fund creation comes after some critics questioned President Biya’s management of the COVID-19 pandemic in Cameroon.
Besides the solidarity fund response, Dr Malachie Manaouda announced that part of the social lodging facilities at Olembe, a neighbourhood in the outskirts of Cameroon’s political capital Yaounde will by the end of this week host some two hundred COVID-19 patients.
He once again reminded of the massive sensitization and screening campaign against the Coronavirus that will run from April 2 to 7 in Douala, Littoral region of Cameroon.
