Service vehicles of the IMM personnel are cleaned regularly and disinfected against microbes and viruses.
Istanbul Metropolitan Municipality (IMM) has rolled up its sleeves to minimize the anxiety caused by epidemic diseases that increase in the winter months and especially COVID-2 disease caused by coronavirus (SARS-CoV-19). IMM takes precautions in public transportation vehicles where the diseases have the highest risk of spreading, and also disinfects service vehicles that provide transportation services to the personnel in charge. With these operations carried out by the IMM Support Services Directorate, 600 vehicles are cleaned at regular intervals. In the works carried out by professional teams, products that do not harm human health are used with silver ion technology.
Epidemics are increasing in the world and in our country with the seasonal conditions brought by the winter months. Cleaning of common areas where viruses carry the most risk of spreading is therefore very important.
IMM has tightened the routine cleaning procedures in public transportation vehicles used by 5 million Istanbuls every day due to the coronavirus epidemic. He started to apply the same disinfection processes to the closed areas within his body. The places of worship, cultural centers and all other activities belonging to IMM are disinfected against the risk of possible epidemics.
