Kohima, Sep. 19 (EMN):
With the economy of the state adversely impacted by the unprecedented Covid-19 lockdown, the government has allowed business establishments to operate. However, there are risk factors especially at various commercial outlets and shops in and around the towns.

Knowing the need to take safety measures against Covid-19, proprietors of business establishments and shopkeepers in Kohima have taken up precautionary steps.

Fancy Market, a shopping complex in Kohima town, now regularly disinfects its entrance, shutters, doors and floors in an attempt to avoid contracting the virus and spreading it.

Speaking to Eastern Mirror, Vikiye Chishi, proprietor of Fancy Market, informed that they sanitise their building with disinfectants daily.

“Every morning, we disinfect our shops and floors before the complex opens,” he said, adding that they disinfect the place irrespective of the numbers of customers.

He apprised that they learned how to operate the sprayer from Kohima district task force on Covid-19 when they sanitised the shopping complex.
Chishi stated that they buy the disinfectants in wholesale from pharmacy with the contribution from all the shopkeepers.

“We use the disinfectants as per the SOP issued by the government,” he said.

“At least we are trying to follow safety measures and government’s SOP to some extent though not 100 % for both our safety and customers’ safety,” he added.

The proprietor went on to say that they are planning to use fogging disinfection next month if the SOP remains unchanged so that they can sanitise every merchandise that are being sold from around 70 shops within its building, be it electrical items or clothing.
