As part of measures to contain the spread of diseases in the environment, a nongovernmental organisation, Rotary Club of Port Harcourt East, Rotary International, District 9141, has carried out a fumigation at Rumuprikom Secondary School and its environs.
Speaking to The Tide shortly after the exercise, President of the club, Rotarian Gift Abgeso said the disease burden in the states was rising and expressed the hope that by the time schools reopen most of the disease causing organisms would have been eliminated
Abgeso noted that the club deemed it necessary to fumigate and sanitise the communities in which they operate especially in the face of the current realities plaguing the world.
He used the opportunity to charge the people of Rumuprikom to maintain high personal hygiene and ensure that the spread of diseases is curtailed.
Abgeso added that the school and community fumigation and sanitisation exercise, was under the Deaease Prevention, Treatment and Control project, one of Rotary’s six avenues of service to the community.
Speaking on the Covid-19 pandemic, Dr Juliet Edward, also a Rotary member, admonished the people to be extra careful of what they touch and pick to avoid coming in contact with the virus
Edward also charged them on maintaining clean environment to eliminate the invasion of rodents in their homes to avoid the spread of Lasser Fever.
