The Accra Metropolitan Assembly on Monday carried out a fumigation exercise across designated markets in the Greater Accra region.
The exercise, under the auspices of the Local Government and Rural Development Ministry, was in partnership with Zoomlion and personnel of the Ghana Armed Forces.
The exercise, according to the Ministry of Local Government and Rural Development, was to help enhance hygienic conditions in the markets amid the novel coronavirus pandemic.
Over 1,000 markets and shops were shut to pave way for the exercise and are expected to be opened on Tuesday for normal business activities.
