The government has engaged Zoomlion Ghana Limited to fumigate all schools across the country.

The contract, authorised by the Ministry of Education, will commence on Tuesday, April 14, 2020.

A statement signed by the Director-General of the Ghana Education Service, Professor Kwasi Opoku-Amankwa instructed all heads of schools to fully cooperate with the Zoomlion Ghana Limited team assigned to their institution and supervise the work to be done.

“I write to inform you that Zoomlion Ghana Limited has been contracted by the Ministry of Education to carry out fumigation of all schools in the country”

“…Regional Directors are requested to direct all Heads of Schools in their respective Regions to cooperate fully and open up their schools to the Zoomlion Ghana Limited to carry out the exercise with effect from Tuesday 14th April 2020”

“It is expected that the Heads will close monitor the exercise and verify satisfactory work at the end of the exercise” the statement detailed.

After the President announced the two-week lockdown, the Local Government Ministry contracted Zoomlion Ghana Limited to fumigate all markets across the country, on Region by Region basis.

The fumigation exercise is part of government’s effort to clean the environment and minimise the risk of people contracting Coronavirus which has so far infected about 378 people and led to the death of 6 persons.

Government has urged everyone to stay indoors and observe social distancing and follow other health and safety protocols while it engages in enhanced surveillance and testing to flatten the curve and halt the spread of the virus.

In addition to fumigation, government has also instituted other measures to prevent the spread of the virus including closing Ghana’s borders and restricting movement of persons within the Greater Accra and Greater Kumasi Metropolis.
