PANIC BUYING OF GOODS AND SERVICES
The attention of the Kumasi Metropolitan Assembly (KMA) has been drawn to a situation of panic buying of food stuff and services by residents of Kumasi following the partial lockdown of some cities in the country.
The KMA will like to reiterate that the president’s directives gave exemptions to markets (food stuff), fuel stations, banks and food joints among other essential services. Hence the Assembly is admonishing the general public to desist from panic buying as these services will always be available during the duration of the lockdown.
The general public should note that trooping to the markets and service centers in their numbers is not healthy as it does not ensure the social distancing but rather put people at risk to COVID-19.
The KMA, is by this release appealing to the general public to desist from panic buying.
