The Upper East Regional Public Jobs Manager of the Zoomlion Ghana, Kojo Njabeore says through the efforts played by his company, the region for some time now has not recorded any case of coronavirus.
The company since the outbreak of COVID-19 has been consistently carrying out disinfection and fumigation exercises on various public and private institutions, aid at curbing the spread of the virus in the region as well as the country.
It was in that view that Mr. Njabeore said has helped to minimize the risk of students and individuals getting infected with the virus.
“You will bear with me that my outfit since the virus outbreak has not been relaxed in fighting it, and has been carrying out various forms of exercises in and out of the region. That, I will say have helped us all to have low cases of COVID-19 records in recent times”, he says.
Mr. Njabeore who spoke at the fourth phase disinfection and fumigation exercise in the Upper East Region said the fourth phase will focus on the second cycle institutions as well as the basic schools both public and private alike.
“We are disinfecting all the public and private schools in the region and we have at least 52 senior high and technical schools and little over 4,300 basic schools to carry out this exercise. Though it has not been easy, we are on course and will definitely hit our targets. In fact, we are looking at one week to end this exercise and we hope to achieve the needed results we have set for ourselves as a company.”
He, however, called on the public to keep on observing the safety protocols of COVID-19 at their workplaces and homes as the virus is still with them.
Meanwhile, some of the School Heads and Senior Housemasters who were present at the exercise appreciated the company and vowed to keep practicing the social distancing protocols when schools resume.
Mr. Napaala Stanislaus, Senior House Master at the Bolgatanga Senior High School said the school has been part of all the disinfection and fumigation exercises carried out in the region.
“We are grateful to the company and to the government for making sure that the exercise comes timely, to help students stay safe when reported to the classrooms. And we as masters will not be relaxed in ensuring that the students practice the social distancing protocols when schools resume on October 5 next month.” He said
