The government has an ambitious plan, but it will only be able to cope with the disease if it is carried out on time, which is still very uncertain.
The third step in the fight against Covid-19 was the announcement made by the Prime Minister on March 31 which introduced social measures amounting to 1,700 billion CFA francs to complement the strategy announced by the Head of State. These social measures are aimed at helping the most disadvantaged sections of society. They take the form of food donations in particular, as well as subsidies for the payment of electricity and water bills. Measures to support the economy have also been announced, including 500 billion CFA francs for various sectors.
