Dr Archibald Yao Letsa, Volta Regional Minister has described the disinfection of markets in the Volta Region as highly successful.
The exercise, under the auspices of the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, was undertaken by Zoomlion Ghana Limited with support from security services, the Regional Coordinating Council and the local Assemblies.
A total of 75 markets across all districts in the Region, major streets, and business enclaves were all disinfected, in an exercise, which employed several mechanised spraying machines, thermal foggers, a road sweeper and a drone.
Dr Letsa said he was impressed with the support received from market women, traditional authorities and other stakeholders and commended them for the purposefulness.
He said Government was committing all resources towards the fight against COVID-19 and that people must respond to directives for a swift end of the pandemic.
The Regional Minister appealed to public institutions, particularly commercial outlets to implement the social distancing parameters being recommended as a safeguard against contracting the virus.
He said the Region would engage institutions including banks on enhancing social distancing.
