Market men, women and users of ever busy Igbudu market to regularly use the disinfecting tunnel in the market to prevent them from contacting the dreaded corona virus.
This call was made by Dr. Michael Tidi, Chairman, Warri South local government area during the commissioning of a disinfecting tunnel built and donated by Hypo Homecare Products Limited in Igbudu market; saying that, the gesture by the company is commendable as government alone cannot tackle the overall negative impact of the global pandemic on the people.
The Warri South Council boss then called on other corporate organisations to emulate the kind gesture of the management of Hypo Home Products Ltd.
According to Tidi, ‘this hygiene tunnel encourages us to prevent ourselves from the dreaded virus. The most important thing for us now is prevention because the Coronavirus disease is real and we must do everything we can to make sure that the virus does not spread.
Tidi added, “II want to thank the management of Hypo for building this disinfecting tunnel for the benefit of the general public. I am not only here to commission this project, I am also here to tell you that the government and people of Warri South local government council are indeed very grateful for this your kind gesture.”
He said that the importance of the tunnel cannot be overemphasized, adding that, because it is better to stay safe than to be in an isolation center. Those who have gone through that road can tell you that it is not a good experience.
Earlier, Mr. Festus Oroh, S-South Area Marketing Manager, Hypo Homecare Products Limited, said that the gesture was part of the company’s effort to help the state government in its fight against the spread of Covid-19.
He disclosed that the tunnel will be placed at the entrance of the market to help everyone going into the market to disinfect themselves before they enter into the market.
According to Oroh, “We want to express our appreciation to the Warri South local government council chairman for giving us the approval to install this hydro hygiene tunnel in Igbudumarket. We also want to thank him for his cooperation so far and we want to assure him that we will continue to work together for the progress of the council.”
He spoke further, “we have completed the tunnel and now people can use it to disinfect themselves from contacting the disease because we all know that the virus has been ravaging the whole world.
Explaining how the tunnel works, Mr. Oroh said anyone that enters the tunnel will stay there for twenty seconds after which he comes out and washes his hands and he is completely disinfected.
