By GNA
Listen to article

Drobo (B/A), April 30, GNA – Traditional and commercial

caterers in Jaman South District are to undergo a screening exercise to

ensure that they are healthy enough to continue with their operations.

Mr. Ofori Ampofo, the District Environmental Officer, told the

GNA in an interview that the exercise would cover both food and

alcoholic beverage vendors.
He said his outfit would undertake the exercise in collaboration

with the district assembly and St Mary's Hospital to ensure that

vendors “infected with contagious and other diseases do not pass

them on to customers.”
The move is also meant to rid the district of many communicable

diseases that have surfaced in the district through food sold to the

public and to manage the situation to curtail future occurrence, Mr

Ampofo added.
He said there had been an upsurge in ailments such as cholera and

tuberculosis and this had been attributed to the kind of food sold by

vendors.
