Liberia gets tear gas to enforce Covid restrictions
Written by MillenniumEditor2 on July 9, 2021
The Liberian government has received a donation of teargas and other riot control equipment to enforce Covid restrictions.
The donation comes at a time when security forces are enforcing regulations against mass gatherings.
The consignment came from France and follows President George Weah’s recent trip to Paris.
The security forces in Liberia are complementing the efforts of health authorities to combat the spread of coronavirus.
The public has ignored warnings to avoid mass gatherings and crowds are still seen in entertainment and market places.
Liberia has been recording increased virus cases and recently received thousands of testing kits from France to boost its testing capacity.
