African Green Federation (AGF) - COVID-19 Response

The African Greens Federation (AGF)

The African Greens Federation (AGF) is very concerned about the Covid19 pandemic which is ravaging the whole world.  Most affected have been Italy and most of the European countries. This is disturbing to AGF as a continental grouping. Already scores of lives have been and trillions of dollars have been lost as several countries implement measures to contain the spread of the virus. In Africa, 46 countries are directly infected with this virus to varying degrees, with presently at least 2400 cases, and 66 deaths. Indeed this tragedy could increase if all our means to stop the spread of coronavirus are not implemented.

As an African Greens Federation we take serious note of the following:

1. Government basic health policies in Africa

We call upon government policies to fully reflect the seriousness of this epidemic. This is done by following international best practices and providing adequate information to the public. Current measures need to be increased to ensure public safety. 

2. Understanding the infection

We call upon all people to learn about how COVID-19 is transmitted and to practice the official health and cleanliness guidelines for reducing the spread of the disease. 

3. Measures for prevention

We call upon all nations to follow correct measures for reducing the spread of the COVID-19 pandemic. As much as possible we must avoid overcrowding and ensure the use of WHO recommend masks for safety.  Every one of us has a responsibility to stop the transmission of the virus.

4. Control measures

Let’s put in place control measures to halt the virus’s transmission from one person to the next. We applaud measures already put in place by different governments and call for close monitoring of the implemented measures for conformity and effectiveness.

5. Compassion

We send our sincere condolences to the bereaved families and wish a speedy recovery to the sick.

Conclusion

The African Greens Federation calls upon everyone in the world to play a positive part in fighting the spread of COVID-19

Together we will win.
