In this podcast #12 we interview Prince Aboagye Anokye, expert for the DEALS project in Kumasi, Ghana. He explains the current situation in the city of Kumasi in relation to the COVID-19. The measures and lockdown came very suddenly and as a surprise to many people. The municipality had to respond quickly by covering water bills and providing food supplies. The city authorities agreed on protocols with market leaders. The city can build upon a high social capital where people look after each other.
