Legallia Foundation and Phadijah General Services Limited have fumigated the entire premises of the Freetown International Airport. This according to the two institutions is to support the government and people of Sierra Leone optimize the prevention mechanisms of Coronavirus from entering the country.

As the globe is faced with the biggest health crisis of all times, the airport in any country must be well-protected since most reported cases around the world penetrated countries through this key entering point. Even with the ban on flights and other operations, the airspace is still open to emergency, cargo, and technical landing flights which makes it vulnerable, according to Arnold Mboma, Programmes Manager for Legallia Foundation.

Expressing his gratitude for the fumigation, the General Manager of Sierra Leone Airports Authority, Ebenezer Macauley said the airport will need more than cleansing as there is a challenge to upkeep staff in the months ahead; should the ban on flights and other revenue-raising activities continue.

The runway, arrival, departure, presidential lounge and all the checking points were among the key areas fumigated. Preventing the virus is a joint effort and everyone needs to give their utmost sacrifice to guarantee safety and greater protection for all citizens.
