‘Ebola a Serious Threat to Liberia’s National Existence’

first_imgMadam PresidentMembers of the CouncilSRSG LangrenAmbassador Marten GrunditzLadies and GentlemenIt is a privilege for me to participate, for the second time, in a meeting of this Council on UNMIL activities in Liberia. Let me begin by expressing the profound gratitude of President Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, the Government and People of Liberia to the Council for its continued support of peace and stability in Liberia. We also want to congratulate you Madam President, on your assumption of the presidency  of the Council for this month.Madam President,We are meeting at a time when Liberia is facing a serious threat to its national existence.  The deadly Ebola virus has caused a disruption of the normal functioning of our State.The disease, which early this year was identified in the remote villages of our country,, has now reached urban centers, including the capital Monrovia. It is now spreading like wild fire, devouring everything in its path. The already weak health infrastructure of the country has  been overwhelmed. Health workers,  including doctors and nurses, who are at the frontline of the fight to control the disease  have been highly affected, with several losing their lives, including some of the country’s prominent doctors and nurses.The rapid spread of this virus created a health crisis, requiring the President to  institute measures aimed at containment.  These measures included establishment of the National Task Force on Ebola, headed by the President herself; creation of an Incident Management Team, led by the Ministry of Health and Social Welfare,  and declaration of a State of Emergency for 90 days.  Additional measures included one month compulsory leave for non-essential government employees, now extended for second month, to limit human to human contact.  Communities with  high incidence of infections were contained and, in specific cases, quarantined in order to limit movement.  A nation-wide curfew is currently in place.The Government of Liberia launched an awareness campaign with the full support  of UNMIL, the Liberian media, civil society organizations, the business community and other bilateral and international partners.  The Government also, through the national Legislature, provided an initial allocation of $5 million dollars to support the national strategy against the spread of the deadly virus.  A subsequent appeal was made to the international community to provide financial, logistical and material support for the implementation of the national strategy which prioritized the following actions: Personal protection and safety of healthcare workers – providing better health care services for all ebola virus disease cases (EVDs), and providing general health care for the population, among other measures.In spite of all these measures, continued denial, traditional practices, religious rituals, fear and community resistance still constitute obstacles to progress.  Government is using all available means to overcome these obstacles and minimize actions of mob violence and other infractions of peace and security.From the few cases in March 2014, the pandemic has mushroomed into a health emergency exceeding the Government’s response capacity. As we speak, this deadly disease continues to spread and cause havoc in many communities.  Nine of the fifteen counties in Liberia are currently affected.  Liberia lacks the infrastructure, logistical capacity,, professional expertise and financial resources to effectively address this disease.Madam President,To be candid, the response by the international community to the  appeal of our Government and partners, in particular WHO and Medecins Sans Frontiere (MSF) was initially less than robust.  However, we are thankful to the Secretary General for his leadership and initiatives in focusing global attention on this virus, including his appointment of a Special Coordinator for Ebola in the person of Dr. David Nabarro.  We are very encouraged by current efforts of the UN to mobilize resources and coordinate the scaling up of interventions to bring surge capacity to bear in response to this tragic situation.  We are equally appreciative of the action taken by the African Union in dispatching a technical team and making funding available to support national efforts.  Even today, the African Union has issued a call to all its Members State to urgently lift all travel bans imposed on countries affected by the ebola outbreak in Africa.  We ask Council members to all use their good offices to support this call.This health emergency is affecting every sector of our society.  Our economy has been very seriously disrupted. Local economic activities such as domestic food production, mining, and transport services have been undermined.  Moreover, the slowdown in domestic food production, particularly in affected areas of the country, has negatively impacted food supply, thus  triggering increasing demand for imported commodities, at higher prices.  The hospitality industry has also been seriously affected by the epidemic.  Today, only two international airlines, SN Brussels and Air Maroc are flying to and from Liberia. The suspension of flights has accentuated the difficulties we are facing and exacerbated the constraint of humanitarian delivery. Madam President,Until today, there have been no reports of infections among UNMIL staff,  both national and international.  The Government is aware that the stakes are high as troop and police contributing countries habour concerns for the health and safety of their citizens.  We extend our appreciation to these countries and appeal for their solidarity by allowing their forces to continue their assignment in Liberia. The UN plan for scaling up the international response needs to benefit from the use of military assets as well.  We thank those countries which have provided these assets and encourage others to do the same.Madam President,The Government of Liberia fully supports the Secretary-General’s request for a technical roll-over of UNMIL’s mandate for the next three months.  Our attention and focus need to be directed towards containing and eliminating the ebola virus from Liberia and other countries. We encourage continued flexibility on the part of the Council in these very difficult circumstances for Liberia. We also hope that the deliberations will take into account the imperatives of protecting the investment and gains made in Liberia over the years for peace and stability.I thank you.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more

Guyana Goldfields produces 37,000 ounces of gold for 2nd quarter

first_img– despite 3-day protest by workersGuyana Goldfields Inc. announced that for the second quarter of 2019, its operations at Aurora Gold Mine have recorded a 45 per cent increase in gold production.Though a full operational and financial result will be released after-market on July 30, the mining company has reported that it has produced 37,000 ounces of gold for the second quarter of 2019 and a total of 74,000 ounces for the first half of the year.On this note, the company says that it is on track to achieve its 2019 production, which ranges from 145,000 to 160,000 ounces of gold.In addition, Guyana Goldfields has recorded a quarterly mill performance of 7,815 tonnes per day, which is actually a 10 per cent increase from the previous year.Vice President of the Canadian company Suresh Kalathil said that since the Aurora Mill resumed operations following a brief standoff by employees, the company is working towards achieving enhanced economies of scale on a cost per unit basis within defined operating metrics.“Cost reduction plans initiated this quarter focused on diesel and reagent consumption reduction as part of our operational optimisation efforts to further reduce costs and improve operating efficiencies. We look forward to continuing a mutually beneficial working relationship with all contractors and employees at Aurora… The Aurora mill is back up to full capacity, following the work stoppage from last week, and we continue to demonstrate best practices in health and safety with over 2 million person hours without a lost time injury,” Kalathil said.Operations at Aurora were shut down on July 3, 2019 because of reported industrial unrest. As a result, three operational days were lost, during which the company had stated that approximately 22,500 mining materials were not processed.It was reported that a portion of the workforce had blocked a delivery of ore to the mill and so the decision was made to temporarily suspend operations until a resolution was reached with the striking workers. The workers, on the other hand, claimed that they were deprived of getting access to a Wi-Fi connection so that they could be in contact with their families on the coast.After the three-day standoff and several meetings with the labour department, the workers returned to work and the company said that it is committed to the labour laws.However, a release issued by the company stated that it will continue with its mine exploration efforts.“The company allocated US$6.8 million in 2019 for additional surface brownfield drilling, initial underground exploration drilling and the resumption of greenfield exploration for a combined total of approximately 30,000 metres”, the release added.It further stated that the two diamond drills were in operation during the second quarter completing 18 holes totalling 5,059 metres, bringing the total for the year to 52 holes and 13,001 metres drilled.Drilling was completed at Mad Kiss, North Aleck Hill and commenced at East Walcott.Meanwhile, the company’s balance sheet remains strong with an unaudited cash balance of approximately US$38.9 million up to June 30, 2019 with no outstanding debt.last_img read more

Groves to face former champion Johnson

first_imgGeorge Groves will fight former world champion Glen Johnson at the ExCeL London on 15 December.The veteran Jamaican, 43, has been named as the surprise opponent for Groves’ defence of his Commonwealth super-middleweight title on the Frank Warren-promoted bill, which will be headlined by Scotland’s world lightweight champion Ricky Burns.Johnson won the IBF light-heavyweight title in 2004 and later that year pulled off a sensational victory by knocking out Roy Jones Jnr.His long list of opponents also includes Nottingham’s world champion Carl Froch, who won a close points decision when the pair met last year.Groves, unbeaten in his 15-fight professional career, expects the wily Johnson to provide his trickiest test so far.“It will be my toughest challenge – no-one has an easy fight against Glen Johnson,” said the 24-year-old.“I’m buzzing for the fight and am preparing for 12 hard rounds because he will give anyone a hard night’s work. I’ll be ready.”Groves, from Hammersmith, recently relinquished the British title after a planned September defence against mandatory challenger Kenny Anderson failed to materialise.An expected rematch with Anderson – who floored him before he battled back to win when they met in 2010 – was scrapped because of a cut Groves sustained in a bruising encounter with Francisco Sierra in California in July.Earlier this year Groves was forced to withdraw from a world title shot against German-based Russian Robert Stieglitz – then the WBO champion – because of injury.“It’s been a difficult year but I had a good win in America and now I’m going to have another good win in December,” he said.“It’ll be a tough challenge but I’m ready for it. I’ve felt ready for quite a while. I’m heading in the right direction for a world title.”See also:Bloodied Groves prevails in San Jose scrapGroves eyes fight at Stamford BridgeGroves’ Wembley fight is off because of cutGroves lines up December title defenceWatch the press conference to announce Groves’ clash with JohnsonGroves believes he can stop JohnsonFollow West London Sport on TwitterFind us on Facebooklast_img read more
