Mr Timothy Kwabena Ofori, the Ahanta West Municipal Director of Health says so far, the Directorate had successfully traced 343 contacts in connection with the 10 COVID-19 cases recorded in the Municipality.

Out of the 10 cases, six males and three females are now in the specialized centre created by the Directorate, while the remaining three were treated from their homes.

Mr Ofori told the Ghana News Agency that the Municipality needed proper isolation centres in order to house infected individuals for intensive care.

The Municipal Health Director said the Directorate also lacked PPE, particularly overalls for frontliners to work with.

In the meantime, the MCE of the Ahanta West, Mrs. Henrietta Eyison has announced that the Wednesday market days in the Municipality had been suspended.

She said, “The women are failing to oblige to instructions and so the Assembly has decided to close the market until further notice”.

  1. Closing the market till further notice is totally uncalled for i understand trying to protect the lively hood of people is important but how is the people going to ‘eat’ the assembly man and say all government political society salary’s comes monthly and without thinking about the people what this will do to them how will they feed their family. I dont know if their blind because from what i know in Ghana we use money to buy food nothing is for free. This measure must be rethought because people are going to die if the market is not opened.
