Coronavirus: Gov’t To Announce 112 As Emergency Shortcode; Telcos To Allow Access To GHS Website Without Data
The Communications Ministry will soon announce that the national emergency short code, 112, will be beefed up and be used as the coronavirus emergency response line.
Reliable sources have confirmed to Adom News that the more professional personnel will be added to those already behind the 112 short code, and they will be given the necessary training to provide proper assistance to callers.
This is to make it easy for Ghanaians to access help in distress time, as the short code is already known and it is simple to dial.
Additionally, telcos will also give Ghanaians free access to the website of Ghana Health Service and other important websites where they can find vital information related to coronavirus
This follows an emergency meeting between the Telecoms Chamber, Ghana Health Service, National Communications Authority and the Ministry of Communications last Friday.
The stakeholders will meet again today at 3pm and bring finality to the implementation of the aforementioned strategies.
