Executives of the Ashaiman Cooperative Transport Society, at the Ashaiman main lorry terminal, have demonstrated their full preparedness in the light of coronavirus concerns and implemented safety measures in dealing with the virus among members and passengers who patronise their service.
About six mini-water tanks, liquid-soaps and sanitisers were placed at vantage loading points, while nose-masks and gloves were also distributed to most drivers and driver’s assistants operating in the terminal.
Baaba Alhassan, President of the Cooperative Society, said the measure is an effort to beat the virus and safeguard the health of members and other commercial drivers and passengers against the COVID-19 pandemic. He urged members to take caution and be part of the collective effort by complying with any directive from leaders to avoid contracting the virus and any punishment.
Mr. Alhassan assured continuity of this sensitisation exercise at the terminal, saying he will monitor strictly to ensure full compliance.
Meanwhile, following the announcement of President Nana Akufo-Addo of no school and others, business has dropped drastically – as most of the passengers who board their vehicles are students.
