Covid-19 : "Assistance will be provided to all Algerians," says Djerad

BLIDA (Algeria)- Prime Minister Abdelaziz Djerad on Monday in Blida said that the State  "will provide assistance to all the Algerians" in the circumstances the country is going through because of the novel coronavirus pandemic (Covid-19) which so far killed 31.

During a visit to Blida’s Frantz-Fanon hospital, Djerad affirmed that thanks to "the mechanisms of solidarity set up by the public authorities backed by the spontaneous spirit of solidarity of the citizens in Blida and throughout the national territory, no Algerian will be left without assistance."

The Algerian State, "despite the difficult financial situation the country is experiencing because of the falling oil prices, will never abandon the Algerian families, wherever they are, in the mountains, in the cities, in the villages or in the Saharan regions."

In this regard, Djerad recalled the creation of local solidarity mechanisms, to meet the needs of confined families and take care of daily workers, who cannot receive income because of the lockdown measures.

"The combination of our efforts and our union will allow us to face this health crisis", he added.

Acknowledging the existence of a "health crisis," Djerad reassured citizens about the absence of "any food or supply crisis", assuring that the Government had taken "all the measures with a view to ensuring a permanent and sufficient supply of markets with different agricultural and food products ".

The Prime Minister said that Algeria "is not suffering any shortage of foodstuffs. Our means of production will be able to meet food needs in the long term".

The State has proven that it can guarantee the availability of food products to all citizens, said the Prime Minister.
