The National COVID19 response team held a workshop yesterday 20th July 2020 at the Accra Sports Stadium to train the National Sports Authority’s (NSA) COVID19 task-force on how to prevent the spread of coronavirus in all sporting facilities.
The resource person for the workshop was Director of Health Promotion at the Ghana Health Service & Leader of the Risk Communication team of COVID19, Dr Da Costa Aboagye, and Acting PRO for the NSA, Charles Amofa, revealed that the workshop was held to get the authority’s facilities ready when the government gives the go-ahead for competitive sports to resume.
“We are doing this in order to get our facilities ready for sports to resume in the country. If we put all these measures in place we expect that people who troop to the stadium will stay safe” he said
Amofa further revealed that this will not be the last workshop we would be seeing as the authority plans to hold more of these in the future.
“It’s an ongoing project and we will be replicating it in other facilities i.e. Kumasi, Essipong, Tamale and Cape Coast” he stated
“This will not be the first and the last workshop or training of this kind they [National COVID19 response team] will be here in the near future to see whether we are going by what they taught us.”
