The Shama District Assembly has temporarily closed down two main markets in the district following the rise in COVID-19 cases in the Western Region.

The markets are Beposo and Abuesi which would be reopened after a week.

The Region, has been declared as the new hotspot in new cases for the COVID-19 pandemic with a record of 304 cases.

The District Chief Executive for the Assembly, Joseph Amoah, said the decision was necessitated by the closure of markets in the Sekondi -Takoradi Metropolis and Ahanta West Municipality.

The observation of social distancing protocols and other healthy measures in the markets have not been strictly followed over the period.

The authorities have also indicated that many of the contact tracing in the cases in the Western Region have close links to market centres.

Mr. Amoah said the closure would pave way for a shift system to be implemented when the market is eventually opened.

Meanwhile, some traders have expressed displeasure at the short notice of the closure.
