Akontombra MP supports health facilities, markets and lorry stations with sanitary kits

Mr Alex Djonoboah Tetteh, Member of Parliament for Sefwi- Akontombra Constituency has distributed a total of 12,312 hand sanitizers and 2,020 Veronica buckets to selected health facilities, markets and lorry stations in the constituency to help prevent the spread of coronavirus.

The beneficiaries included; the Akontombra health centre and market, Nsawora market and clinic as well as kromokrom clinic and market.

Mr Tetteh during the presentation advised them to follow all the laid down measures to help stop the spread of the pandemic which included; regular washing of hands under running water, regular exercise, observing social distancing and above all maintaining good hygiene.

He called on transport operators and market women to adhere strictly to the President's directives since they encounter many more people on each passing moment.

Mr Tetteh who doubles as the Deputy Western North Regional Minister, also urged them not to politicize the disease, since it did not know political colours and asked them to educate others on the need to keep their environment clean since that was the only way to be free from the pandemic.
Some of the market women and transport operators commended the MP and health professionals for taking them through the proper way of hand washing and the need to use recommended hand sanitizers.

They said the arrival of the hand sanitizers was timely as there was scarcity of the commodity.

They also appealed to him to intensify public education by extending it to other areas of the district.
