Mr Samuel Ansah, Public Health Officer of the Municipal Health Directorate and Madam Martha Nneka Oparah, the NCCE Director and other members of the team, advised the traders to adhere to personal hygienic practices of regular handwashing, use of hand sanitizers and maintaining clean environment at all times, in order to save them and their communities from contracting the deadly disease.

Mrs. Deborah Mensah and Uncle Ebo, dealers in Plastic wares and mobile phone accessories respectively, and Araba Saah Awuah, an iced water seller, all expressed similar sentiments, and prayed for divine intervention to save the situation.
