The Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) for Mamprusi East, Danladi Abdul Nashir, is drilling over six mechanized boreholes for markets in his municipality, aside already completed ones.

The drilling is to help with the provision of reliable water to help traders wash their hands frequently in line with Covid-19 safety protocols.

In all, there are nine markets in the six zonal councils of the municipality which are going to benefits from different projects in the municipality.

Speaking in an interview with Journalists in Lamgbishi, during the ongoing nationwide disinfection and fumigation exercise, he said the municipality is doing everything possible to stop any further spread of the virus, after the first six cases were recorded.

The municipality, he noted would not have recorded any case, if student nurses of the Nalerigu Nursing Training school which is in the municipality, had not brought the virus into the school, therefore making it an imported case.

He said, the municipality is committed to keeping the infection rate in the area very low by enforcing the safety protocols.

"The President took the fight against Covid 19 seriously by providing PPE to institutions across the country which has reflected in our municipality with the only six confirmed cases", he pointed out.

"Of the six confirmed cases, five have fully recovered and one is just on admission, who is even doing well", he further pointed out.

He was optimistic that, when all the protective measures of wearing nose masks and the observation of social distancing are strictly adhered to, the cases will still remain the way it is in the municipality.

Aside the tireless effort to maintain the low rate, the MCE, said the Assembly has employed about 200 youth, whose job it is to ensure that the environmental cleanliness of the municipality is maintain.
