Hon. Kojo Acquah, Municipal Chief Executive of Effia Kwesimintsim Municipal Assembly has tasked the newly appointed 10 Member Municipal Health Committee to conduct a simulation exercise for Corona virus outbreak.

According him per experiences drawn from the outbreak of Sars, Ebola virus in neighboring countries and intermittent Colera outbreak in parts of the country should be used as case studies to guide the committee in dealing with any future health emergencies in the municipality.

“We must learn from the mistakes of the past, embrace the opportunity of the present and shape the future we all want. In this regard, lessons learnt from the outbreak of SARS and Ebola virus in neighboring countries, intermittent Cholera outbreak in parts of the country and best practices in the wake of the Corona virus out break should guide as to succeed”

He went on further to charge members of the committee to consider looking into the recent Corona virus which was first reported from Wuhan, China, on 31 December 2019 but has recently been declared as a global emergency by the world health organization.

‘‘I am looking forward to seeing the committee conduct a stimulation exercise for corona virus outbreak in the Municipality one of these days. This means that the committees must work hard in order to prevent any form of epidemic  from occurring in the Municipality ’’
