Lock-down has been lifted in Ghana, not least because of so many people need to go to their farms if they are to eat. That aside, Ghana seems to have got off lightly from Covid19, with under 100 deaths – though so many people are innumerate that it’s hard to have confidence in the figures.
Earlier this week Ashanti Development organised a communal meeting at Nyinampong where, as shown in the photos, everyone observed social distancing. We explained we needed to do a pump test on their borehole to see if there was enough water in it to allow us to mechanise. The pump test was agreed and carried out, and everyone was overjoyed to find the borehole had more than enough water to justify mechanisation.
