A mandatory house to house testing of the Coronavirus is set to begin at Ayawaso West after the Municipality was identified as a hot-spot for the deadly virus.
A lot of contacts with confirmed cases were traced to the Municipality which has resulted in this call for mandatory testing. The exercise is expected to last for 10 days.
It is believed that all areas can possibly be covered by ten days time and the areas likely to be affected are Legon, Dzorwulu, East Legon, West Legon, Okponglo, Abelenkpe, Roman Ridge, Airport Residential and surrounding areas.
“Over one hundred health professionals and security agencies (police, Immigration and National Security) would be deployed into the communities within the Municipality to carry out the exercise,” the Assembly said in a statement.
Ghana’s Coronavirus status stands at 195 confirmed cases, 5 deaths and 38 recoveries as at 1st April.
