Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly(KMA) has reinforced the mandatory wearing of face mask in the metropolis. 

This comes after President Akufo Addo made the wearing of face masks in public compulsory as the country tries to contain a surge in COVID-19 cases in recent weeks.

''It is important for me to remind residents of the Greater Accra and Ashanti Regions, where the great majority of cases have been recorded, and in the Western and Central Regions, where we are seeing an increase in infection cases, to continue to adhere strictly to the social distancing and enhanced hygiene protocols announced''.

''With the doctors and scientists telling us that the virus is transmitted from human contact, through talking, singing, coughing and sneezing, which results in sending droplets of the virus from one person to another, residents of these four regions, and, indeed, all Ghanaians, must remember that the wearing of masks is now mandatory''.

''Leaving our homes without a face mask or face covering on is an offence. The Police have been instructed to enforce this directive, which is the subject of an Executive Instrument''.

Speaking to Nana Ampratwum on SilverFM's breakfast show dubbed Omanbapa, the Public Relations Officer of Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA), Henrietta Aboagye said security agencies have been deployed at vantage points to help enforce these directives.

''Our Chief Executive has reiterated government directive of making wearing nose masks mandatory when he engaged leadership of various trade and market unions last Friday''

''He also advised the groups not to substitute the wearing of face masks for other protocols like social distancing and hand washing due to the surge in cases''

''The law enforcement agencies have been tasked to ensure strict adherence to the directive''

“Market leaders and NADMO officials have also been tasked to help the police and other agencies”

More than 11,000 patients have been diagnosed with the virus in Ghana, with the death toll at 54.
