The Goaso Police Command has apprehended 75 persons in the Ahafo Region for flouting the Covid-19 safety protocols.

Speaking to Adom News reporter Sammy Asare, ASP Danso Abeam said he was shocked when reports brought to him on persons apprehended included nurses and teachers.

According to him, it is worrying to note that persons who per their line of duty should know better are part of the culprits breaking the law.

“I was shocked this morning to see teachers and hospital staff who even work at the emergency ward as part of the persons arrested.”

ASP Danso Abeam disclosed that the number of people who fail to adhere to the safety protocols is alarming.

“Even those who pass through the community to other places can be seen in face masks,” he added.

He, therefore, urged all persons to put their lives first by wearing a face mask since the police will continue to arrest offenders.

The 75 persons have been released on bail with substantive sureties.

The head of the Goaso Police Division indicated that sanctions to be meted out to the 75 persons would be determined by the Ahafo Regional Command on Monday, January 25.

In similar events, some 85 persons are in the custody of the Koforidua Police Command for not complying with the Covid-19 protocols.

The offenders were released after receiving warning letters.

Also, Police at the Tesano Police Station have arrested 200 persons for failing to wear facemask in public areas.

Presently, the country has 2,799 active cases and 361 deaths recorded, according to the Ghana Health Service (GHS).
