As the COVID crisis worsens with an increase in infections and several deaths being reported, the founder of the Cummings Africa Foundation and Alternative National Congress (ANC) political leader, Alexander Cummings, has embarked on a need assessment visit with few hospitals in Montserrado, Margibi and Nimba Counties. Over the weekend Mr. Cummings visited the Fidelity Hospital on 20th Street to accordingly get involved in finding solutions to the raging COVID-19 crisis.
“Today, a small team including Dr. Wede Brownell, the Country Director of the Cummings Africa Foundation, my Chief of Staff Atty. Moriah Yeakula and myself paid a visit to the Fidelity Hospital on 20th Street, Sinkor, Monrovia. We were pleased to meet with the administrators and are grateful for their cooperation,” Mr. Cummings stated in a social media post.
“Please my people, COVID is raging but it can be defeated if we follow the rules and guidelines as provided by Ministry of Health. We must continue to wear our masks, wash our hands frequently, stay away from crowds, take the COVID tests and vaccines and go to the nearest health center when we feel sick. Just as we defeated Ebola together and collectively, we can defeat COVID. Stay safe, follow the rules and let us also pray for our country,” Cummings pleaded.
“I want to personally thank our healthcare workers for their sacrifice and commitment to saving lives. What they do inspite of the challenges and dangers, is pure patriotism and our country owes them a depth of gratitude.
“To our citizens, do not despair. I know how hard it is waking up to several deaths news. My wife Teresa and I have had our own share of the shock and sadness, but we cannot lose hope in our ability to defeat COVID.
“Please continue to follow the rules. Wash your hands. Wear your masks over your nose and mouth. Avoid crowded places. Visit the nearest hospital when you feel sick. Take the COVID vaccine to protect yourself. Remember the vaccine may not prevent you from getting COVID, but it drastically reduces the severity and your chances of death,” the CAF founder stated.
