Manager at Vector Control Unit, a subsidiary of Zoomlion Ghana Limited, Mrs Akosua Konadu has said the chemical used in disinfecting the country’s airports and its facilities is very efficacious.
She said that the exercise forms part of the monthly disinfection exercise for the country’s airports.
Mrs Konadu was speaking to journalists on Wednesday dawn during this month’s (August) disinfection operation at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) in Accra.
She stressed that the disinfection exercise has been concentrated more at the airports because they constitute key entry points into the country.
With the combined use of foggers, she indicated that the thick fog penetrates deep into possible hiding places for viruses and rid them for the safety of staff members and passengers.
The exercise also saw a team of sprayers from Zoomlion using different kind of machines to spray all possible spots.
All exposed surfaces including door handles, tables, chairs, janitorial closets were not left out during the exercise.
Parking lots at the KIA and its surroundings, including touchable surfaces outside, were also dealt with.
The airport disinfection is done monthly to make the place safe, especially for the working staff.
