Andhra Pradesh got its first organic disinfection tunnel in Anantapur district

The Sub-Collector of Penukonda took the initiative with the support of Dr Karthik Narayana, who is running Sugaradhana project in Karnataka, in setting up organic disinfection tunnel

Three such tunnels came up in Hindupur

  • Instead of sodium hypochlorite, CitrobioShield solution is used in organic disinfection tunnel

The solution is being used at Rajiv Gandhi Institute of Chest Diseases in operation theatres for fumigation
