MWSC has installed sinks in three locations across Male’ city in a bid to cleanliness and good hygiene at a time when the world is being threatened by a pandemic.
Medical professionals have advised to frequent hand washing and maintaining good hygiene to stay safe from the Covid-19 virus.
The sinks in the capital city were placed in the local market area, fish market area and Vilimale’ ferry terminal area for public use. The sinks will enable people to wash their hands and maintain a good standard of hygiene even when outdoors.
To encourage the public to practice regular hand washing & to enable such facilities at public avenues, we have installed hand-washing basins, under our CSR. The wash basins are located near the local market, fish market & Villimale’ Ferry Terminal. #SafeHands #ISkurunfen pic.twitter.com/8hZl1WHKtr— Male' Water and Sewerage Company Pvt. Ltd.

The Maldives has confirmed 13 cases of the Covid-19 virus so far out of which five have since made full recoveries. However, the government is not taking any chances on the virus spreading and has implemented stringent steps to ensure this.
