A Vector Control Officer of Zoomlion Ghana Limited(ZGL), Enoch Mintah, has revealed that the company’s continuous disinfection of the country’s airports is aimed at containing the spread of the virus.
He said despite the reduction in Covid cases across the country, the company will continue to carry out disinfection operations in the country’s airport until the virus is no more.
“Even though we know there has been a fall in the number of cases recorded in recent times, we’re bent on ensuring the country records zero cases of Covid, particularly at the entry points”, he assured.
Mr. Mintah made the observation during the monthly disinfection of the Kotoka International Airport on Tuesday, March 29, 2022.
He also underscored the need to concentrate more on the country’s airports, detailing that most of the cases recorded by the country we imported.
“We all know that the airports detailing that most of the cases recorded by the country were imported. “we all know that the airport is a hotspot. Therefore, the need to concentrate on the airports. We know we have recorded low number of cases and that is not the reason to stop the disinfection of the airports, our main aim is that we want to keep the infectious cases down,” he further said.
Explaining the reason for the continuous disinfection the airports, Mr. Mintah noted that because some travelers may not have been fully vaccinated, the possibility of them spreading the virus was very high when they come into contact with others.
He said Zoomlion, as a private company, will continue to put measures in place to help achieve zero cases of Covid. He therefore, called on the general public to join hands in achieving the aim.
