Passengers using the Tamale International Airport are assured of their health safety particularly against the corona virus, following a disinfection exercise undertaken at the facility by waste management company, Zoomlion on Tuesday night.
The disinfection of the Tamale Airport, the second to be undertaken by the company formed part of preventive measures put in place by government through the Ghana Airports Company and waste management company Zoomlion that has been at the forefront of sanitizing public spaces including schools, markets and workplaces.
It is hoped that with the opening of the country’s airspace with effect from Tuesday, September 1, as announced by Nana Akuffo Addo, travelers including Ghanaians would be coming home and some would likely sojourn to the north via the Tamale Airport.
According to a vector control officer with Zoomlion in the Northern Region, Abdul Aziz Yelsuma, the disinfection of all public spaces within the airport, was in line with health and safety protocols towards reducing risks the of spread of the virus at the Tamale Airport.
“It is very clear when the president mentioned the reopening of borders that persons stranded abroad will come in and we have to make our airports safe. The second phase of the disinfection started with Kotoka International Airport. It is the turn of Tamale and we came with our men to undertake the task. The disinfection is very important and this denatures viruses and other microorganisms in the systems, that are likely to cause diseases,”Abdul Aziz Yelsuma stated.
