COVID-19: FG Plan To Decontaminate 125 Aircrafts, 13 Airports



Estimated Reading Time: 1

The Federal Government has marked 125 aircraft and 13 airports for decontamination across Nigeria. Speaking in Abuja on Wednesday at a briefing of the Presidential Task Force on COVID-19, the Minister of Environment, Muhammad Mahmood, said this was part of the measures to halt the spread of coronavirus and other diseases.

He said “the aviation sector is such a specialized sector. We cannot rush things. I did say that we’ve mapped out 125 aircraft and 13 airports.

So far, we’ve decontaminated and disinfected two aircrafts. Why we’re not rushing it is because of the nature of the industry. It’s a place that when it comes to safety, everything must be followed carefully, and even when we want to do that, we have to follow their lead as to how and where to go while decontaminating the aircraft.”
