Government as part of its strategy to combat the spread of COVID-19 in the country has announced some preventive measures for social event organisers and managers of companies to observe.

Speaking at a press conference on Sunday, Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah said organisers of social events and managers should provide hand washing stations and hand sanitizers to workers and attendees.

He indicated that attendees and workers should be regularly reminded to observe the preventive etiquettes at regular intervals to ensure that the risk of getting infected is minimal.

“There should be frequent cleaning and disinfection of washrooms and frequently touched places such as doorknobs and stair rails.

“Organisers and managers should also make available adequate waste management facilities such as single-use tissues and closed bins,” he stated.

This comes after the Ghana Health Service confirmed four more cases of the deadly virus in the country, bringing the total number of confirmed cases to six.

The Minister further urged citizens to remain calm and adhere to the preventive measures instituted by GHS in the wake of the pandemic.

The Covid-19 which started in December 2019 at the Wuhan Province of China, was declared a pandemic by the World Health Organization (WHO) on Monday since it has affected about 162,578 people and killed more than 6,069.

The deadly virus has spread to over 60 countries across all continents except Antarctica.
