Updated: Apr 9, 2020
GCC is doing an excellent job in containing COVID 19 by spraying disinfectant water on buildings to wash gates, grills, walls, parapets, etc. which are the spots for more contamination.
Zone 13 was also sprayed with the disinfectant on Apr.3. However, unlike in Zone 13, it was done using a hydrant on a smaller vehicle. The authorities informed that while a fire engine was being used on major roads like L.B.Road and S.P.Road, smaller vehicles were used for residential localities that were lined with vegetation.
On Mar.30 residents of 1st Avenue and 2nd Avenue at Vettuvankeni were surprised to see firemen using hoses to spray disinfected water on houses along the road. This work has been going on for the past 3 days, said Rajesh, the supervisor of Div.196 of Zone 15. They will cover 1st and 2nd avenues, Bethel Nagar and Hanuman Colony, he added.
V. Murthy, Assistant executive engineer, Sholinganallur said this solution is water mixed with disinfectant Sodium Hydrochloride and Lysol. We are also taking the door to door count of senior citizens, women, and children, pregnant ladies, people with hypertension or diabetes in each house for a database. People who have come from abroad are being tested for the virus, he commented.
