The National Sports College (NSC) at Winneba in the Central Region has set up an isolation centre to manage any suspected coronavirus case.
Acting Director of the College, Mr Noah Bukari, explained it forms part of measures to prevent spread of the virus should any case be recorded.
“Any suspected case of Covid-19 will be sent to the pavilion and the summer huts in the College which are going to be used as isolation centres to manage the situation,” he disclosed.
He said this when Zoomlion Ghana Limited disinfected the College against the deadly coronavirus pandemic.
He also added that the College has bought Veronica buckets, alcohol-based hand sanitisers and loads of nose masks to be given to their students.
“All of the above together with the practice of social distancing will help protect the students and the staff against the Covid-19.
He lauded Zoomlion Ghana Limited and the Ministry of Education for the initiative to disinfect the College.
“We are very happy to see our college disinfected against the new coronavirus pandemic. We believe the exercise will help a great deal in safeguarding us all against the virus,” Mr Bukari said.
Meanwhile, Zoomlion has also disinfected the Winneba Vocational Training Institute.
Speaking to journalists on the sideline of the exercise, the Principal of the Winneba Vocational Training Institute, Mr Martin Ekow Young, lauded the exercise, which he noted was key in preventing the spread of the virus.
On measures employed by the institute to protect the final-year students, he disclosed that the school authorities have resolved to reduce class size to 25 students.
“There will be Veronica buckets together with soaps just at the entrance of every classroom. We will also make available alcohol-based hand sanitisers for use by the students and the teaching and non-teaching staff,” he noted.
He said the institute had also made provision for thermometer guns which would be used to check the temperatures people who enter the institute.
Though he said they have not been bought yet, Mr Young assured that will be done before reopening.
