The Drunkards Association of Ghana is appealing to the president to introduce a double-track system at drinking spots and bars across the country.
The president of the association, Moses Onyah speaking to Joy News said the double-track system must be introduced at these drinking centres to prevent overcrowding and the potential spreading of the virus.
He said like just like the current double-track system of the Free SHS policy, the drunkards should be divided into two groups and are allowed to drink in the morning and evening respectively.
“In an open place where people can rush in to drink… when you drink to some level we will allow you to go home so that we allow others to also come. We will give you a card if you’re in the gold batch you will come in the evening, if you are in the green batch you will come in the morning so that we will be able to observe the social distancing protocols,” he said.
President Akufo-Addo, in his 14th address to the nation on measures to be taken the government to fight the coronavirus pandemic, announced the reopening of open-air drinking spots and tourist sites in the country.
