Harare City Council in partnership with Ecosure and Hitbay Sanitation Services have stepped up efforts to fight Covid-19 by installing mobile hand wash basins across the capital city’s busy hotspots.
The hand washing basins are meant to raise hygiene standards, encourage the culture of washing hands as a preventive measure to fight the spread of Covid-19.
Clean City and Harare City Council also took time to disinfect the city’s bus termini. Harare spokesperson Mr Michael Chideme said it was necessary to spray surfaces because the virus is found everywhere.
“We partnered with Ecosure and we will install these hand wash basins across the city’s busy spots. We are trying to conscientise the culture of washing hands. We are also applying for more support so that we can install these basins at all the bus termini in the country,” he said.
Commuters and vendors interviewed by The Herald at Simon Muzenda bus terminus (formerly Fourth Street bus terminus) applauded the partnership between City Council and Ecosure.
They encouraged citizens to shun away from vandalism, and help in keeping the hand washing basins and clean.
