The Ghana Union of Traders Association is advising members of the business community, particularly traders who intend to travel to China for business or any other thing to hold on.
GUTA has rather encouraged the transaction of business online until the coronavirus outbreak is brought under control.
In a statement, GUTA said “those who have recently returned or are returning from a trip to China and its environs should carefully observe themselves and report to the nearest facility immediately they start feeling any symptom of the disease as stated by health officials for early diagnosis and treatment.”
It, therefore, urged the business community to listen and comply with the directives issued by the health authorities in Ghana.
“It is our prayer that no trader is affected by the virus”, the statement said.
Many members of GUTA travel to China daily to transact business.
So far, no Ghanaian has been reported to have been infected by the Coronavirus.
