A local Ghanaian taxi driver simply identified as Joe has created an ingenious hand-washing invention for passengers to help avoid the spread of COVID-19 in the car.

In a brief interview sighted by YEN.com.gh on the personal handle of Vivian Kai Lokko, the gentleman demonstrated how the device works automatically without any form of contact with the hand.

Interestingly, when asked what his level of education was to be able to propound such an amazing solution, Joe mentioned that he could not even make it to high school

According to the taxi driver, he had to combine lots of miscellaneous items and could not immediately estimate how much it would cost to replicate the process on another car.

The device comprises a water outlet that is attached to the side of the car which oozes out water when triggered from the driver's side but Joe said he could easily replace that system with a sensor.

It is thought that when this invention is commercialized, it would help a lot to contain the spread of COVID-19 especially now that Ghanaians freely move about their normal activities despite the pandemic.

In another report, William Garrison, a prisoner at Michigan in the United States, has given up the ghost just weeks to getting released on parole, after spending 44 years behind bars.

Reports by Nypost and News9.com confirm that William Garrison was sentenced 44 years ago at a time when he was a juvenile.

It is reported that Garrison's death occurred after his bunkmate noticed that he was finding it difficult to breathe in their two-man cell at Macomb Correctional Facility.
