Commercial sex workers in the Ashanti regional capital, Kumasi, have been hit hard by the novel coronavirus (CONVID-19) that has hit the world, forcing some of them to call their customers at reduced prices.

They said the disease is preventing their customers and potential customers from engaging their services for the fear of contracting it through body contact, but to them, the CONVID-19 is not the only disease that put their health at risk.

There has been a ban on all social gatherings, shaking of hands, body contacts, social distance of two meters among others, all practical measures of avoiding the spread of coronavirus that has hit the country.
The country has so far recorded 52 cases of the virus disease, with two deaths, as at Monday, March 24, 2020, in the midst of adhering to the measures of avoiding body contacts, social distance, washing and sanitizing of hands, avoiding gatherings among others, announced by the Services (GHS).

“Though I am afraid of the disease but I have to confront it as it's my source of income. I used to entertain ten customers a day, but with the advent of the coronavirus, only two customers have patronized me in four days, even at reduced prices,” a Queen of the Night, as they preferred to be called, said without allowing to be recorded.

The Chairman of sex workers at Adum Mr Francis Fiagbenu in an interview  said “life has become hard. Since last week, his workers  have not even slept with one customer, how am I going to pay for their rent and other bills.  I am afraid of the COVID-19, but there are other diseases that kill. I pray that the disease is controlled as early as possible to reverse business to normalcy.”

He said they have put some water and sanitizer in every room which will be used by their clients and urge Ghanian to come and enjoy as they use to.
