first_img Read Full Story Health experts should focus on messages to build public trust around a COVID-19 vaccine and tamp down the hype around the innovative and sophisticated technologies that are being leveraged to rapidly develop such a vaccine, according to a New England Journal of Medicine Perspective article co-authored by Barry Bloom, Joan L. and Julius H. Jacobson Research Professor of Public Health at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.The Sept. 8  article suggested that more emphasis should be put on the fact that recently released guidelines from the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for testing and approving a vaccine are scientifically sound and that the agency will not make any compromises when it comes to evaluating the safety and efficacy of the vaccine. The article also suggested that more efforts should be made to highlight to the public that the FDA and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention have plans for a robust long-term vaccine safety and monitoring system.“There is already a flood of misinformation on social media and from anti-vaccine activists about new vaccines that could be licensed for Covid-19,” the authors wrote. “If recent surveys suggesting that about half of Americans would accept a Covid-19 vaccine are accurate, it will take substantial resources and active, bipartisan political support to achieve the uptake levels needed to reach herd immunity thresholds.”last_img read more

first_imgThe Palm Beach County state attorney’s office will not file charges against a man who is accused of pulling a gun on a customer at a Walmart in Royal Palm Beach during an argument over masks.Vincent Scavetta was facing one count each of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and improper exhibition of a firearm.Scavetta was caught on video pushing an elderly man in a wheelchair at the Walmart when a man with his daughter approached him and they began to argue. Witnesses say the argument was over Scavetta not wearing a mask. Palm Beach County Sheriff deputies say Scavetta gave the guy the middle finger before pulling out a handgun from his waistband. “I’ll kill you,” Scavetta told the man, according to the arrest report.However, all this evidence was not enough to charge Scavetta, according to Assistant State Attorney Autumn Gurrola. Gurrola wrote in an Aug. 27 filing  “Although there was probable cause to make an arrest, the evidence cannot prove all legally required elements of the crime alleged and is insufficient to support a criminal prosecution.”last_img read more

World Bank Re-affirms Commitment to Liberia

January 18, 2020 | jqykayon | No Comments

first_imgWorld Bank Country Manager, Inguna Dobraja has reaffirmed the Bank’s commitment to closely work with the Government of Liberia in the successful implementation of the Bank’s Country Partnership Strategy for Fiscal year 2013-2017, which was designed together with the Government to support the country’s Agenda for Transformation (AfT).Ms. Dobraja made the statement on Monday, June 17, during the officially opening of World Bank new office at the German Embassy compound in Congo Town.She said: “It is indeed a great honor for us all to be celebrating the opening of a new office today for the World Bank.  This simple and fine architectural gem represents more than a place of work for our staff and a meeting place for our varied in-country partnerships.”“In all of its granite, aluminum and concrete solidity; in its eerie resonance of Monrovia’s architectural vernacular and landscape; and in its pleasing proportions, this cluster of buildings is more than fitting physical projection of the World Bank Group’s commitment to the long term and strategic partnership with Liberia.  We are here to stay and be a good partner for as long as it takes,” she noted.She said that infrastructure carries a huge pay stub and the involvements of other development partners in addressing the infrastructure challenges have been pivotal. “In this regard, I would like to commend the Liberia Reconstruction Trust Fund (LRTF) for their support to Liberia’s infrastructure agenda. As perhaps all of you know, the LRFT is a multi-donor trust fund for infrastructure, which is supported by contributions from the European Union, and the governments of Great Britain, Sweden, Ireland, Norway and Germany, and the World Bank.”“The LRTF is administered by the World Bank and it is supervised by an Oversight Committee comprising the ministries of Finance and Public Works, Development Partners, and the World Bank.  Let me also commend your Government, Honorable Minister Ngafuan for the very evident progress you have made in the intervening years in executing your infrastructure rehabilitation and investment agenda. “According to her, the World Bank will remain engaged with Liberia in supporting economic growth and poverty reduction.  “This commitment was manifested in our current Country Partnership Strategy for Liberia spanning 2013-2017, which we have closely aligned with Liberia’s Agenda for Transformation (AfT).”She further said, “This Strategy focuses on financing investments in infrastructure, especially energy and transport, along with building the human and institutional capacity necessary to deliver results.”She said over the time, the World Bank has seen strong growth in the size and depth of its program in Liberia – a growth that was foreseen after the country’s successful completion of the HIPC process in 2010.”The building, Ms. Debraja said, was originally built at a time when Liberia was in the forefront of West Africa in such areas as provision of health care, rice production and cutting edge iron ore production.  It was built for a German company, Bong Mining Company that was operating in Bong Mines in Bong County.    “We actually took possession at the beginning of this year and, as expected,   it has taken several months to complete the finishing touches, including developing the gardens and green spaces of this beautiful compound.    I am happy to report that we are now fully operational and have the pleasure to see many of you here for meetings and other events,” she disclosed.She also lauded chief architect, Ms. Christian Furler and her team as well as   the ADI Contractors who did the renovation works. “I will also like to express our appreciation to our many Bank colleagues, both here and in Washington, who have worked tirelessly to make this new office a reality.  Special thanks to Mrs. Maria Ponce de Leon who is the Bank’s architect in charge of this project.”Also speaking, Foreign Minister Augustine K. Ngafuan said the establishment of a new and better Office Complex in Liberia by the World Bank represents a huge vote of confidence in Liberia’s future.By this,“You the WB has joined others including the British Government that last year reopened its Embassy in Liberia with a resident Ambassador after almost two decades of closure.  He also said other countries including Sweden, Qatar and Brazil, amongst others, opened their embassies near Monrovia.Acknowledging the World Bank contribution to Liberia, Minister Ngafuan said the movement of the World Bank’s Country Office from Mamba Point considered as the diplomatic enclave, to Oldest Congo Town   far away from the diplomatic enclave and the center of the city testifies to the ever deepening stability and security that Liberia has been experiencing for a little over ten consecutive years.According to him, World Bank was the biggest partner that assisted in crafting Liberia’s development frameworks – the IPRS and the PRS, and the recent Vision 2030 and its five-year slice – the Agenda for Transformation.Moreover, the Foreign Minister said the Bank was also a key player followed by the IMF in driving Liberia through the HIPC  debt relief process which eventually saw Liberia being unshackled from itsUS  almost 5 billion dollars debt burden. Furthermore, the Bank contributed half of the funds which enabled the Liberian Government to clear commercial debts of over 1billion dollars through debt buy-backs.The Bank has contributed to the rebuilding of critical infrastructure including the paving of Monrovia’s streets under URIRP Project, support to the Monrovia City Corporation under the Emergency Monrovia Urban Sanitation project (EMUS) that provides solid waste services.Meanwhile, Liberia joined the World Bank in 1962, becoming its 75th member. The country later received its first funding to finance the construction of two new roads, including the highway from Monrovia to the Roberts International Airport, and financing for equipment and materials to maintain Liberia’s entire road system.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)last_img read more
