5.86 lakh litres of disinfectant sprayed by MCD in sanitisation drive
The Municipal Corporation of Dehradun (MCD) finished its two-day sanitation drive on Sunday using about 5.86 lakh litres of one percentage sodium hypochlorite solution. On Saturday, the corporation sterilised 50 out of 100 wards with the help of 51 tankers using 3.02 lakh litres of disinfectant. On Sunday, MCD disinfected only 45 wards out of the remaining 50 wards of Dehradun with 2.84 lakh litres of disinfectant using 49 tankers. According to the officials, the remaining five wards will be sanitised on Monday. Apart from public places, the corporation also sanitised quarantine centres, containment zones and Covid care centres. The Dehradun municipal commissioner Vinay Shankar Pandey said that rather than spraying disinfectant on wide roads and open areas, MCD focussed on the areas where the chances of spreading contagion are more including the residential areas, railings or roller shutters of shops, benches and main gates of buildings among others.
It is pertinent to mention here that this was the second sanitation drive conducted by the municipal corporation this month. On the directions of State administration, the MCD commenced such weekend sanitation drives to minimise the risk of community spread of Covid-19 in the city.
