According to her, the “Kayayei and Paa o paa workers have the greatest potential of carrying the Coronavirus to their rural hometowns in the Northern and Upper Regions of Ghana”. The Municipal Assemblies must put up Emergency Medical Teams to receive the Returning persons from Accra and Kumasi etc. The District Medical Director should set up District Medical Team to monitor the health of the Returnees, especially the children. The Social Welfare should begin to design Retention Programmes in Vocational and Technical Skills for training post coronavirus pandemic. GHA remains optimistic that government would respond to the call to support these people and save innocent lives.
