Covid Mp Supports Health Directorate Police And Market Women


Mr. Kwaku Asante-Boateng, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Asante-Akim South has donated assorted items to help fight the coronavirus in the constituency.

The items worth over GHC40,000.00, included Veronica buckets, hand sanitizers, liquid soap, disposable gloves, nose masks, tissue papers, and non-contact thermometers.

They are to be distributed to the various health facilities, markets, police and lorry stations in the Constituency to help prevent the spread of the virus.

The MP who also led a team of volunteers to distribute some of the items to market women and taxi drivers at lorry parks and markets in various communities used the occasion to educate the public on the need to observe all the precautionary protocols to help contain the virus.

Mr. Asante-Boateng said the fight against the global pandemic required the collective efforts of every Ghanaian.

He said the national response plan put in place by the government to combat the disease would not succeed if the citizenry refuses to comply with the necessary basic protocols and directives.

“Let us all adjust ourselves to the current situation and observe the preventive protocols recommended by our health authorities,” he pleaded.

The MP said it was important to protect health workers especially those at the forefront who were sacrificing their lives daily in the interest of the public.

“This is why we have procured these protective gears and sanitizers to enable our health workers to go about their duties adequately protected against the disease,” he stated.

Mr. Reuben Antwi, the Municipal Director of Health Services, commended the MP for the donation, which he described as timely and critical to service delivery in the face of the deadly disease.

He said the constant availability of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for health workers would boost their confidence in attending to patients, saying that, every client who visited a health facility was a potential carrier of the disease.
