The Incident Management System has ended an orientation and strategic meeting with the Incident Command Systems and political leadership of both River Cess and Grand Bassa.
Concern Worldwide, an international NGO operating in Liberia, has donated a used Land Cruiser to Grand Bassa’s Incident Management System, the body set up to manage the county’s COVID-19 cases.
Grand Bassa has recorded an additional three new Coronavirus cases, just as the government has begun to relax the most stringent measures put in place to contain the virus. The county now has a total of nine cases.
The trial of the suspects in the murder of German national Juergen Schedemamn has been postponed until the August term of court after the court allowed the public defender’s request for a jury trial.
After being blasted by Montserrado’s Sen. Darius Dillon for signing a recently passed recast budget, Grand Bassa’s Sen. Jonathan Kaipay has responded to the Liberty Party senator and explained his reason for his vote.
Grand Bassa’s county health officer, Dr. Anthony Tucker, and eight senior health personnel in the county have gone into isolation at the ArcelorMittal concession area in Buchanan.
Steel giant ArcelorMittal has announced the suspension of operations at its Buchanan concession after three new COVID-19 cases were announced by the Grand Bassa County Health Team. The cases are related to the company’s first Coronavirus positive case it reported on May 14. It was also the first case reported in the county.
Nearly two days after Grand Bassa confirmed its first Coronavirus case, three additional cases have emerged.
