As part of efforts towards the fight against coronavirus in Lagos, Nigeria’s foremost hygiene and household disinfectant brand, JIK, has donated hundred cartons of bleach to the Lagos State Government through the Ministry of Environment for the disinfection of public places in the state.
It said the donation was in support of the state government’s fight against the pandemic, which has been on the increase in recent times in Lagos and the entire country.
Speaking on the gesture, Country Manager, RB Hygiene West Africa, Asif Hashimi said, “This is a critical time and we’re proud to collaborate with the Lagos state government in the fight against COVID-19.
“This contribution is in line with our effort to curb the spread of infectious diseases caused by germs and viruses, as well as promotion of good hygiene and clean environmental practices in Nigeria.
“Over the years, Nigerians have come to trust JIK to keep their homes in good sanitary condition and help curb the spread of infectious diseases in their families. JIK is safe for the environment as it kills 99.9 per cent of illness-causing germs on surfaces.
It is also friendly for laundry and the environment, which has been corroborated by the Nigeria Centre for Disease Control (NCDC) as part of precautions that should be adopted to help with prevention, among other measures.”
Continuing, he said, “JIK can be used on numerous surfaces including door knobs, stair railing, floors, kitchen slabs, table tops, bathrooms and toilets surfaces, washing of clothes as well as fumigation in open places to maintain a healthy and hygienic environment.
“We are optimistic that this humble contribution will support the overall effort of the Lagos state government to stem the tide of coronavirus in the state.”
Hashimi further assured that the brand would continue to support the federal and state governments, as well as the health authorities’ efforts in the fight against covid-19.
