The Happy Taxi operator organized a disinfection campaign in Mayangone Township, Yangon, yesterday as a move to prevent transmission of COVID-19 pandemic.
Ko Chan, the founder of operator, said, “We offered disinfection of all the taxis while we are spraying disinfectants on the roads in the residential wards.”
They also donated breakfast to taxi drivers who accepted their offer.
A total of 1,000 automobiles, including private cars, were disinfected from 9 am to 12 noon.
U Sein Tun, the chairman of Mayangone Township Development Committee, said, “It is a good job. Prevention and containment of COVID-19 must be done by the community. People, both taxi drivers and passengers, need to wear face masks at the moment.”
Disinfection campaign is being carried out at the taxi stands of airport, ports and railway station, while the civil organizations are spraying disinfections and lime powders at the residential quarters in Yangon.—Zaw Gyi
