Sports Physician and CAF medical officer Dr Prince Pamboe has outlined measures that must be adhered strictly to by the various national teams as they embark on preparations ahead of their respective CAF and FIFA qualifiers in September amid the coronavirus pandemic.
Ghana's national women's team, the Black Princesses (U-20), Maidens (U17) and the U-17 men's team the Black Starlets have been given the green light by the government to begin preparations ahead of their respective qualifiers in September.
Dr Prince Pamboe stated that CAF has given all its Member Associations guidelines on how to restart football activities amid the pandemic thus the Ghana FA must take those into account to ensure the safety of its members.
He stated that the guidelines though not compulsory can also help in ensuring the players and technical team members are safe in camp as they are set to begin preparations in a few weeks.
He outlined some measures which must be put in place by government and the Ghana Football Association before the players are called to camp.
“All the players must be tested before they begin camping. An isolation centre must be created in camp so that when a player is infected they can be quarantined and possibly treated"
“An ambulance must also be made available at the camp whilst all players must have a room to themselves. Two buses must be provided for the team so that proper social distancing can be done”, he told Happy FM.
