U.S. Embassy In Monrovia Issues Alert, Highlighting Increased Crimes, Low Level COVID-19

The United States Embassy near Monrovia has again issued another alert, highlighting increased violent crimes rate, such as armed robbery which the embassy noted is common, particularly in urban areas and on public beaches, indicating that the local police lack the resources to respond effectively to serious crimes.

The embassy website said, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has issued a Level 1 Travel Health Notice for Liberia due to COVID-19, indicating a low level of COVID-19 in the country.

The alert posted on the embassy’s website said, the  U.S. government is unable to provide emergency services to U.S. citizens outside greater Monrovia at night as U.S. government employees are prohibited from traveling outside the capital or between counties after dark (with the exception of travel to and from Roberts International Airport).
