Some six police personnel and two Community Protection Assistant’s have tested positive for the novel coronavirus pandemic in the Central Region.

The personnel, are said to have contracted the virus during work-related duties such as operations and manning of posts.

Confirming the incident to the media at a short ceremony to officially kickstart the disinfection of police facilities in the Central region by Zoomlion, the Central Regional Police Commander, COP Paul Manly Awini said two of the said officers have recovered and tested negative with the others currently undergoing treatment.

COP Awini added that the command has instituted measures to keep its personnel safe and also put in place some protocols.

“As officers we are observing all the COVID-19 protocols in the performance of our duties. This is because a lot of people come here. The citizenry always comes here to lodge complaints; we are still handling cases, and going to court as well,” the police commander said.

About 104 police facilities in the region are expected to be disinfested and disinfected by Zoomlion Ghana Limited (ZGL) in the Central Region.

The exercise, which will last for five days, is part of measures by the Ghana Police Service to fight and contain the spread of the novel coronavirus disease.

The exercise, a collaboration between the Police Administration and Zoomlion Ghana Limited, will cover the police training school, police stations, markets, offices, cells, and barracks in the region.

On his part, the Central Regional Minister, Kwamena Dunkan charged the Interior Minister to conduct such exercises in police and prison facilities quarterly.
