The DCE also commissioned two mechanized water systems funded by the COVID-19 Fund at the Nsawora and Akontombra markets.

Mr. Amoah said the gesture was in line with the Local Government Ministry's initiative to provide water at various market places to enhance hand washing to curtail the spread of the virus.

The DCE as part of the distribution with support from the National Commission for Civic Education (NCCE) educated residents on the need to adhere to all the COVID-19 safety protocols in order to maintain the zero active case of COVID-19 in the District.

The team encouraged the residents to observe physical and social distancing, regularly wash their hands with soap under running water, use alcohol-based hand sanitizer, and wear nose masks.

He indicated that the government had provided the Assembly with more than enough PPEs and that they would be distributed in every community within the District.

The DCE said the Assembly would intensify its measures and educational Programmes so as not to record any positive cases.

He announced that the remaining PPE would soon be distributed to all the communities to ensure that everyone within the District was not left out.

Some of the market women who received the items commended the government and the District Assembly for the various interventions provided them so far.

The items include 5,000 washable nose masks and 6,430 hand sanitisers.
