Disinfection tunnels to be substituted by hand sanitizer dispensers

Instead of the disinfection tunnels, the use of which was banned by the Special Republican Commission, it is necessary to use hand sanitizer dispensers, the Ministry of Health reported.

 In early September, the Ministry of Health called disinfection tunnels useless in the fight against the coronavirus infection.

“The use of chlorinated solutions as disinfectants is a worldwide experience. American experts point out that the primary objective of using disinfection tunnels and disinfecting streets was to prevent panic among the population. Their effectiveness has not yet been proven,” Professor Ilmira Razikova, Doctor of Medical Sciences, said.

According to her, chlorine solutions used in disinfection tunnels can be very harmful to the human body.
