Grace Afi Hadzor, who led the team revealed that their objective is to help sensitize the traders on the need to prevent coming into contact with the virus which has affected the lives of some people in the country as well as claiming the lives of several others.
"The only way we can win the fight against COVID-19 is to strictly observe the health protocols outlined by the world health organization adopted by the government of Ghana which includes the observation of social distancing, wearing of nose mask, sanitizing our hands frequently and washing our hands under running water with soap".
She cautioned the traders to always adhere to the protocols, insisting that putting the nose mask on the chick should not be encouraged. She also encouraged the frequent use of hand sanitizer because of the nature of their job where the exchange of money which could be a factor to contract the deadly disease is the order of the day.
