Market disinfection won’t kill coronavirus – Gov’t clears

Deputy Minister of Local Government, Mr. O.B Amoah has said the disinfectants to be administered today at the various markets in the capital has no efficacy to kill and prevent the deadly covid-19 virus.

Speaking on Anopa Kasapa on Kasapa 102.5 Fm Monday, Mr OB Amoah disclosed that the move is a routine by local authorities to sanitize and clean up market facilities.

“What we’re doing is not to prevent coronavirus. Anybody that tells you that the disinfection we’re undertaking today has the efficacy of killing coronavirus is a lie. If along the line, government secures coronavirus disinfectants we’ll make it known to the public,” he told host Kweku Owusu Adjei.

About 1000 markets are earmarked for the nationwide disinfection exercise on the back of the outbreak of the coronavirus pandemic.

Over 100 markets have been closed for such exercise in the capital, Accra.

In-line with the President’s directive on measures to contain and prevent the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19) in the country, the Accra Metropolitan Assembly (AMA) with support from the Greater Accra Markets Association will disinfect all public market centres within its jurisdiction today.

Towards this end, the markets will be closed down today, Monday, March, 23, 2020 and reopen the next day for normal business to continue.

The rationale behind the closure is to enable the Assembly to disinfect all the markets and other public places.

This forms part of precautionary measures by the Assembly to curb the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19).
