Northern Regional Vector Control Director of Zoomlion Ghana Limited (ZGL), Mr Abdul Aziz Yelsuma has advised institutions, agencies and managers of public facilities to inculcate the habit of disinfestation of their facilities.
Periodic disinfestation of places such as markets, guest houses and hotels he noted is very important, especially during the period of covid-19.
Mr Aziz explained that excretes from insects, rodents and other nuisance diseases causing organisms is very dangerous for human health and getting rid of them is crucial at this time.
Information about covid-19 he added was still scanty, amidst speculations that it came from animals and can be transferred from animals to human.
According to the Vector control Director, the origin of corona virus also remains mystery among scientist and therefore all efforts must be made to ensure that the environment is safe.
Mr Aziz was spoke to Zaa News after disinfection exercise of Terminals, VVIP lodge, Generator rooms, offices and part of the military command at the Tamale airport.
The Ghana Airport Company Limited is collaborating with Zoomlion for their periodic disinfestation of the airport.
