After the discovery of the coronavirus, the National Institute of Health (NIH) made the decision to test the wastewater of all inbound planes.
The National Institute of Health (NIH) has written to the Civil Aviation Authority (CAA) to request that all international planes into the country be subject to strict surveillance and inspection.
Regular samples of wastewater from overseas flights will be collected as part of the new procedures.
The National Institute of Health (NIH) will offer training for the sample collection method, and the aviation authority will be responsible for developing the mechanism through which the samples will be obtained.
CAA will also be responsible for advising sanitary employees of the right technique of disposal of waste water from overseas flights, to guarantee the safety of the individuals collecting the samples.
Essential safety gear including jerry cans, gloves, long shoes, face masks, and face shields will be provided.
