A source close to the Ashaiman police station has disclosed to Joy News that 10 inmates there have tested positive for Covid-19.
The commander in charge of the station, the source said, only got to know after random tests were conducted by health officials two weeks ago.
So far, out of the 54 samples taken 10 persons are said to have tested positive and have been isolated. The police officers there are yet to go into self isolation as they await the result of their test.
The inmates of the Ashaiman Police Station have since been transferred to an isolation centre until further notice after testing for Covid 19.
Joy News learned officers at the station have been duly informed and directed to adhere strictly to the WHO protocols of constant hand washing and social distancing.
However, in another development, the Vice President, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia says the Covid-19 pandemic should provide an opportunity for businesses and institutions to adopt relevant technology to improve service delivery.
He said business would not be as usual after the pandemic and institutions have no option than to subscribe to digital technology for efficiency.
Dr Bawumia said this when he launched an Integrated ICT System for Microfinance and Small Loans Centre (MASLOC) at the Jubilee House, in Accra.
The ICT platform is an innovative solution to enhance transparency and accountability in the disbursement and recovery of loans.
