Accra Metropolitan Assembly(AMA) is seriously looking at the possibility of running a shift in various markets within the Accra Metropolis to help curb the spread of COVID-19.
The assembly earlier disinfected several markets in a bid to make it safer for traders but the recent spike in the country’s positive cases and death means many other options would have to be considered.
Public Relations officer of the Accra Metropolitan assembly in an interview with Citi News revealed they will meet various stakeholders to determine what plan will be put in place.
“The mayor will be meeting some stakeholders today [Wednesday, 20th January 2021] to put in some measures. Recently we relocated bulk tomato dealers within the Central Business District. So when they bring the tomato in bulk, they will be packed at different locations and do the distribution. During the COVID-19 and as part of the measures we moved them to the hearts park, and they complied.” He said.
