DICO Systems Donates to Noguchi

DICO Systems , a registered bio-tech company in Ghana established to prevent , sanitise reduce and destroy air-borne viruses has donated a Sanitization Chamber to the Noguchi Memorial Institute for Medical Research as its contribution to help in the fight against COVID-19 disease.
The chamber is used to sanitize the entire part of the body and luggage without any direct contact. It has a hand washing facility, safe sanitizer solution, foot and body disinfectant. It seeks to eliminate spread of the COVID-19 through contact with contaminated surfaces.
Mr. Kweku Apeadu, the Director and Consultant of DICO Systems stated during the short ceremony that the company fully understand what the threat and dangers of our current situation is, and thus they came up with this system that will help one to thoroughly disinfect before entering work premises.
“We from DICO are very proud of the work that you have been doing and the way that you have stood in the frontline with all the frontline workers in Ghana to be able to help and protect and for our path, we feel that this is the smallest thing we could do to strengthen NMIMR work force”, he noted as he expressed his appreciation to the Institute.
Dr. Daary Dennis, the Consultant for DICO, stated in an interview that the disinfectant they used is currently the hydrogen-peroxide which comes at a concentration of 3%. By research it shows that it is very save for the human skin and it has no irritations whatsoever as compared to the bleach that is used in some systems.
Prof Abraham K. Anang, Director of the Institute, who received the item on behalf of Noguchi acknowledged DICO Systems for their contribution and was proud to say that the Chamber is made in Ghana.
“We know that it does not end here, the future holds a relationship for us and for that we are grateful”, he stated.
