FDA registers 45 companies to produce local PPEs

May 06, 2020

The Food and Drugs Authority (FDA) of Ghana has so far registered 45 companies to produce homemade facemasks, gloves and face shields.

In the wake of the Coronavirus disease, the Ministry of Health (MoH) has directed the use of face masks in all public places where it may be difficult to maintain social distancing. It has also recommended that Ghanaians use only FDA-approved masks.

The use of cloth face masks can slow the spread of the virus, and help people who may have the virus, but do not know, from transmitting it to others. In effect, they help us to be each other’s keeper as they reduce the chance of us unknowingly pass germs on to others.

There are three main types of face masks available offering different levels of protection: disposable surgical/medical, N95 masks and cloth masks.
