Reckitt Benckiser, producers of Dettol, has joined government’s campaign to sensitize Ghanaians against the spread of the deadly coronavirus.
On March 15, health officials announced that Ghana had recorded 6 cases of COVID-19 within 3 days and called for public support in curbing the spread.
Producers of the disinfectant product, Dettol, heeded to the call by presenting sanitation products to government to aide in public sensitization.
The products which included boxes of Dettol soap and Antiseptic were received by the officials from the Ministries of Information and Health in Accra.
Presenting the items on behalf of the Senior Management Team, the Brand Manager at Reckitt Benckiser, Cassandra Atibila said the donation was meant to support the Information Service Department with its community awareness on washing of the hands which is one of the main preventive measures against the spread of the virus.
Dettol has been on the frontline supporting hand washing initiatives as a way to prevent spread of illnesses.
“We will intensify our efforts during this period”.
Staff of the company also used the opportunity to demonstrate a brief hand washing exercise to encourage personal hygiene.
