More public places to be disinfected

Arrangements have been made to disinfect public places including the Central Bus Stand, Pettah and bus stands in the suburbs to prevent the spread of COVID- 19 coronavirus in the country.

The SLCTB buses and inter provincial service private buses were disinfected at the Colombo Bastian Mawatha Private Bus Stand yesterday (16) under the supervision of the National Transport Commission.

This exercise commenced under the patronage of the National Transport Commission Chairman Shashi Welgama and Director General Commander Nilan Mirando at 08.30 am.

The disinfecting exercise was held throughout the day where the buses were sprayed disinfectant on the inside and out and hand washing stations were set up. In addition, drivers and conductors were taught how to get passengers to disinfect their hands with hand sanitizer liquid.

NTC Director Commander Mirando said that this exercise would not be stopped with today’s exercise and it would be continued on a regular basis.

He said that a director would be given the responsibility of monitoring this process and ensuring that it is done regularly. He noted that while several hand washing stations were established on Monday, the number of hand washing stations would be increased.
