WHO Donates 14 Vehicles To Boost Cameroons COVID-19 Combat Team

In a bid to help boost Cameroons mobile team in the battle to contain the Coronavirus pandemic, the World Health Organisation (WHO) has donated 14 vehicles to the government of Cameroon to help facilitate the process.

The vehicles were handed over to the Governor of the Centre region in Cameroons Political capital, Yaounde. It was during an official ceremony at the esplanade of the Governors office Tuesday April 28, 2020.

Speaking while receiving the keys to the vehicles, Governor Naseri Paul Bea, disclosed that the donation was very timely as the region needed these vehicles to access remote and interior areas.

The Centre needed these vehicles. We have remote and landlocked localities like Ngambe Tikar, Lekie, Yoko and others. So the need was huge for us. We want to say thank you to WHO, Naseri said, adding that WHO also assisted them with fourteen drivers as well as fuel money for the vehicles.

The WHO representative at the ceremony, Itama Christian, said being the most affected region, the Centre region is the most affected area of the country and needs proper attention.

"It is for this reason that we could not remain without supporting the Centre region in order to control this epidemic,” Itama said.

The donation comes at a time when the coronavirus cases continue to surge around the country with over 1600 cases, over 55 deaths and 915 recoveries.
