In other news, as the coronavirus cases keep surging with a terrifying daily death toll, traders in Tema have decided to take advantage of the situation.
Nose masks have been proven to be one of the effective protocols put in place by the World Health Organisation(WHO) to prevent the spread of the virus.
The demand for nose mask has dramatically increased following the surge in Ghana's COVID-19 cases.
This situation has forced traders to increase the prices of the protective gear for monetary gains, considering the fact that the demand has gone up.
