Ghanaian genius, Richard Kwarteng Aning, has invented a solar-powered sensitive handwashing sink to help in the country’s battle against the novel coronavirus. Ghana has so far recorded 641 confirmed COVID-19 cases with 83 recoveries and eight deaths. 

The Ghana Standard Authority (GSA) has already certified the breathtaking invention to allow for its commercial production amid the race to halt the spread of the novel coronavirus, which has infected 2,165,500 people globally with 145,705 deaths.

Developed from a recycled barrel, the sink comes with a double tap, one for water and the other for soap.

With an inbuilt sensor, the solar-powered sink allows for the flow of soapy water immediately a hand goes beneath the tap. It then follows with an alarm notifying the user of the readiness of the other tap to discharge water which lasts for 25 seconds. 

Aning, the inventor and a BSC Marketing graduate, hopes the certification will help in the country’s battle to stem the spread of the novel coronavirus, noting that he had already put up a factory for mass production. “…So we are going to employ a lot of people and get this thing on the market because lots of calls are coming in for orders and we can’t fail Ghanaians and Africans. “So, we have to do this and do it well. That is why we are partnering with the GSA to get this standardized for the international market,” Aning was quoted as saying.
