A cross section of Ghanaians have called for a ban on public transportation to temporarily minimize the spread of COVID-19, while others are of the opinion that passengers should rather take precautionary measures.

The call comes after the President ordered the closure of all schools and universities in the country, as a protective means of containing the spread of the virus.

Commercial vehicles are mostly packed and there are fears it could lead to a wide spread of the virus should an infected person get on board.

Meanwhile, the National Chairman of GPRTU, Kwame Kuma in an interview says all transport operators will meet Tuesday 17th March to know how best passengers and all drivers and transport owners nationwide should go by the directive of using or placing hand sanitizers in their vehicles.

Mr. Kuma advised both passengers and drivers to obey the laid down rules.
