In her explanation, announcements have been made on a number of times on the wearing of nose masks but most have turn deaf ears to the call which poses threat to the entire Ntotroso township due to the availability of the second wave of the deadly virus.

“The level of insults I get anytime I confront people to wear the nose masks is unbearable so the availability of policemen will help,” she hinted.

She said the police officers who would be assigned should not spare all defaulters of the said COVID -19 safety protocol to deter others and also send a strong signal to others nation wide especially those who believe the COVID -19 is not real.

“The police need to act fast and be rigid on this else the effective fight initiated by President Akufo Addo against the virus won’t yield any good fruit ” Nana Esi , Ahafo Ntotroso Market Queen Mother said.
