Ghana’s leading waste management company, Zoomlion Ghana has said it’s embarking on a voluntary disinfection exercise to disinfect all Public Universities throughout the country as part of measures to curb and the slow of the spread of the novel coronavirus and other possible viruses.
The leading waste treatment firm has also initiated a national senior high school fumigation and disinfection project at Accra Girls Senior High School in collaboration with the Ghana Education Service later today.
Today the exercise started in all 16 regions of the country.
Collectively, there would be fumigation and disinfection of five hundred and forty-six (546), boarding schools, one hundred and seventy-six (176) day schools, twenty-eight (28) special schools and three hundred and eighty (380) private schools throughout the nation.
Zoomlion Ghana said this phase will suit the excercise as the students are home as a temporary school break in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic.
This added that fumigation and disinfection, among others, would eradicate bed bugs, snakes, rats, etc. in both senior high schools and public colleges, and thus help delay the spread of the lethal novel virus.
