A young Ghanaian man has come out with an invention to help combat the coronavirus pandemic through effective hand-washing - an automatic device fitted to a tap.
The invention was recorded in a live demonstration that was sighted by Legit.ng on the official Facebook handle of JoyNews.
This particular invention employs a low-voltage device that can be fitted on any kind of bucket or container and allows water to flow on its own once a hand is put under the tap.
See the demonstration in the video below:
The invention comes in a series of similar inventions that have been made by locals in Ghana to help reduce the spread of COVID-19 through hand-washing, which is recommended by health experts as one of the best ways to prevent the disease.
Many social media users have been reacting wildly to the invention with many comments coming in.
Kojo Mensa mentioned that the invention must not be left as it is but be improved and commercialized quickly:
Mavis Frema Wiredu raised the alarm that the innovation has actually been in common use in various parts of the world and added that the government of Ghana should invest in it:
Meanwhile, Legit.ng earlier reported that as the world deals with the shortage of medical materials, most especially face masks, in the fight against Covid-19, an Aba tailor, Jacinthia Kakaide, came to the rescue.
The noble thing about her effort is that she is producing and giving face masks out for free so that the people of Umuatako Community in Aba can protect themselves against coronavirus.
In speaking with the media, Kakaide said she started the production when she realised that not many in her community are buoyant enough to buy a face mask.

She added that since the outbreak of the virus in the country, the price of the material shot up to N600 per one in Aba, something many could not buy due to their weak financial capacity.
The good Samaritan has since made over 300 masks and given to many young people on the streets. She said she only wants to help because it is not safe to walk around without the facemasks.
