Dimapur, May 22: The Confederation of Nagaland Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CNCCI) on Friday installed two sanitation & disinfectant tunnels at Dimapur Railway Station prior to the arrival of the 1,477 returnees from Chennai.
The tunnels, which were formally inaugurated in the morning of May 22 by APC and COVID-19 In-charge Y. Kikheto Sema (IAS), will, for the trial period, only be used to disinfect the luggage that the returnees would be carrying and upon the nod by ISO and Drug Controller General of India, would be used on humans too.
Sema, in his brief remark, said that CNCCI is doing something for the people for which they will never regret and added, clarifying any concern, that the use of the chemicals are completely safe and other north-eastern states are already using the same composition for disinfecting people.
CNCCI chairman Dr Khekugha Muru introducing the tunnels said that the procurements of the tunnels have been done after communicating with all the district chambers and taking in their suggestions and dedicated them to the people of the state on behalf of all the business persons.
Calling the COVID-19 emergency a fight against humanity, he mentioned that the chemicals used in it are silver nitrate and hydrogen peroxide and not sodium hypochlorite, which makes the composition safer.
Sema also distributed face-shields, and hand sanitizers among the media persons and police on the occasion so as to facilitate their protection while performing their duties.
CMO Dimapur Dr Tiasunep Pongener was also present during the inauguration ceremony. (Page News Service)
