In the wake of the dreadful coronavirus, over 7,000 people have lost their lives following its outbreak and further spread across the world including African countries.

Ghana is among many African countries that have recorded cases of infected persons.

As part of measures to ensure that people stay healthy against further spread of the pandemic and reduce the death toll, some guidelines have urged people to drink more water to stay hydrated and also to wash their hand under running water.

Unfortunately, some areas do not have access to running water and have had to improvise to protect themselves and loved ones.

Some Ghanaians have reacted to Buabeng’s portable gallon-tap which he designed for people to wash their hands under running water.
