Some households in the Asene-Manso Akroso District have acquired veronica buckets with tippy taps and soap and placed them at their doorsteps for handwashing to protect themselves against the coronavirus infection.

This came to light when the Ghana News Agency (GNA) went to the District to find out how people are complying with the directive of the President to help protect the country against the spread of the coronavirus.

In an interview, Madam Naomi Acquah, a porridge seller at Akyem Manso said, trading had become a challenge especially for food vendors since most passengers and pedestrians have refused to buy food at the roadside leading to low earnings.

Mr Robert Amewuda, the Environmental Health Unit Officer in the Asene- Manso-Akroso District advised people to wash their clothes immediately after use.

Mr Kofi Owusu, a taxi driver at Asene, said the restriction of movement declared by the government was a blow to taxi drivers and patronage of their services had dropped drastically.

Mr Adu Frimpong, the Headteacher of A.M.E Zion B. Primary School said, the COVID-19 fund created is a way for Ghanaians to demonstrate their financial commitment as citizens to help fight the virus.

Mr Frimpong said he was doing everything possible as a founder of the Campaign for Food Right of the Child Foundation, to use part of his salary to support the fund.
