Disinfection tunnel installed in Mirpur


Artoonad, a social organisation of the youth, has set up a disinfection tunnel near Adorsho School at Dhaka's Mirpur-6, as the country struggles to contain the spread of coronavirus.

They implemented the pilot project with their own funds and opened it for the people on Tuesday, a press release said, adding that another tunnel for Mirpur-10 is in the pipeline.

Once an individual walks through the tunnel, the laser sensor becomes activated and it starts spraying disinfectant on the person.

The tunnel has a two-hour battery backup, laser sensor, two sprayers and a 20-litre tank and this capacity can be increased as per demand.

A 20-litre solution is enough to disinfect about 120 people.
