Markets in the Ashanti Region are to be closed on Friday for mass spraying as part of measures to help curb the communal spread of the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) in Ghana.
The move is part of the programme of the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development to curb the spread of the pandemic.
A total of 43 markets in the Ashanti region will be closed to business on Friday, March 27, 2020, for the mass spraying exercise.
Consequently, the markets would be locked down to prevent obstruction during the exercise.
A statement issued by the Ashanti Regional Minister, Mr Simon Osei-Mensah on Wednesday, March 25, 2020, called on the public to remain calm and cooperate with the team that would be found round to do the disinfection.
