The Obuasi Municipal Security Committee (MUSEC) has launched an operation to enforce the social distancing directives in the Obuasi Central Market.

Obuasi is one of the high-risk spots for COVID-19 in Ghana and the Security Committee was working to ensure that all preventive protocols and restrictive measures were strictly observed by the people to prevent further spread of the virus in the municipality.

The Security Committee as part of the operational measures, have moved some of the traders from the Central Market to the Kunka Market to create space and enhance spacing at the markets.

Deputy Superintendent of Police (DSP) Martin Asenso told the Ghana News Agency at Obuasi that, the social distancing protocol was crucial in the fight against the spread of the coronavirus.

He said it was mandatory for the market women to comply, hence the need to launch the operation to ensure total compliance in all markets in the Municipality to maintain the safety of both the traders and buyers.

Some of the traders who spoke to the GNA asked the Security Committee to find a suitable place for them instead of the Kunka Market since that place could not accommodate all of them.
