A huge crowd of tomato sellers at the CMB Market in Accra have been captured in a video battling one another in very close physical contact as the prices of the vegetables increased and each wanted some for themselves.

In a video report sighted by on TV3 Ghana's official Facebook handle, one of the vendors spoke on camera indicating that they previously bought the goods at GHC 800 but they are now being sold for GHC 1400.

This probably explains why all the market women were over one another in an attempt to procure some of the fast-getting-scarce goods for themselves.

According to the lady, they know very very well the dangers in crowding together for the goods in relation to the pandemic COVID-19 but they chose to do it because it became highly necessary.

She went a step further to mention that they had confidence in hand-sanitizers that they all would use to 'treat' themselves when they are done grappling for the goods.

A different lady among the tomato vendor who was quizzed on the nature of their crowding stated that none of them had come from infected countries and therefore stand at no risk of contracting the disease.

She was quick to add that even if there is anyone among them who may be infected, God would protect all the rest from COVID-19.
