Lockdown: Health workers to enjoy free ‘Aayalolo’ bus to work – Akufo-Addo

President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo says health workers within the lockdown areas will enjoy free, ‘Aayalolo’ buses to convey them to and from work, along specific routes, for the entire duration of the restrictions.

According to him, this is an initiative from the Ministry of Transport.

In his 5th televised address to the nation since the outbreak of the novel Coronavirus, the president amongst other things announced that “an insurance package, with an assured sum of GH¢350,000 for each health personnel and allied professional at the forefront of the fight, has been put in place, with a daily allowance of one hundred and fifty cedis (GH¢150) being paid to contact tracers.”

He added that, his government has also decided that all health workers will not pay taxes on their emoluments for the next three months [April, May and June.]

He said, “All frontline health workers will receive an additional allowance of fifty per cent of their basic salary per month [March, April, May and June.]

“The March allowance will be paid alongside that of April,” President Akufo-Addo noted.
