Sceptical of outdoor sanitisation
KUALA LUMPUR: The effectiveness of public sanitisation exercises is still a matter of debate. While some countries have adopted it as a method to control the spread of Covid-19, others have chosen to steer clear due to potential health risks.
Although Malaysia has adopted it since the onset of the Movement Control Order (MCO), experts are still weighing the facts, especially on outdoor sanitisation.
Infection control expert Dr Tengku Zetty Maztura Tengku Jamaluddin confirmed that the chemicals and their concentration administered by the authorities were recognised by the World Health Organisation (WHO) as being able to effectively kill the virus.
