A coconut seller has become the toast of social media users after a photo of a handwashing stand he mounted near his selling point emerged online.
Ghana, just like the rest of the world, is fighting the Coronavirus disease (COVID-19) and has already recorded 24 cases with one person passing away.
Among the many pieces of advice from health professionals, the most important has personal hygiene, particularly the washing of hands with soap and alcohol-based sanitisers.
In his bid to help stop the spread of the disease the coconut seller who is said to be based in Cape Coast decided to mount handwashing stand for his customers.
A photo sighted by YEN.com.gh shows the handwashing stand made with a veronica bucket and liquid soap standing right beside the seller's joint which is located near the Atta Mills Library.
According to Vishnu Quojo Dadzie Coleman who shared his photo on Facebook, this coconut seller mounted a handwashing basin where customers are directed to wash their hands with soap and running water before they enjoy their coconut.
After sharing the photo in the popular Facebook group called Tell It All, many in the group showered praises on the coconut seller for doing the right thing.

The closure was announced by President Nana Akufo-Addo in a public broadcast on Saturday, March 21, 2020
According to Akufo-Addo, the move is to help reduce the importation of Coronavirus into the country.
