Health Savannah Disinfection

The National Emergency Disinfection Exercise against COVID-19 has disinfected markets and lorry stations across the Savannah Region.

The exercise brought commercial activities in major towns in the region where the exercise took place to a halt as traders and shop keepers closed down their shops and stalls to pave way for the exercise.

A total of 60 markets and lorry stations in the region were disinfected.

Mr Samuel Tikah, Deputy Savannah Regional Minister, who addressed a press conference to herald the exercise at Damongo on Wednesday, said it formed part of measures being rolled out by the government to prevent the spread of the deadly COVID-19 in the country.

Mr Tikah gave the assurance that the Savannah Regional Coordinating Council would continue to put in place measures to protect residents of the region from the virus.

Mr Desmond Appiah, Technical Advisor to the Exercise, urged residents to stay safe and practice the precautions put in place to help prevent the spread of the disease.

Mr Saeed Muhazu Jibril, West Gonja Municipal Chief Executive thanked the people of Damongo for adhering to the directives and allowing the exercise to take place successfully.
