Coronavirus: Disinfection cabin for Larnaca bus passengers


Cyprus public transport has assigned a disinfection cabin for passengers at their main bus station in Larnaca, press officer and commercial director of the company Alexandros Kamberos said on Friday.

Passengers will now be able to enter the specific room to disinfect their hands and have their temperature automatically checked. There will be indication in light and sound if they are clear to get on the bus.

“The cabin also has smart features such as recognition of mask use by the passengers,” Kamberos told Cyprus News Agency.

The company is also looking for an appropriate disinfection to be able to spray the entire body of the passengers, the press officer said.

“However, at the moment, no approved disinfectant has been found by the European Union, which will be safe for humans,” he said.

The new measure was implemented as 20 employees have tested positive for coronavirus in Larnaca and Nicosia. The positive cases are self-isolating.

The company said it implements all the protocols by the health ministry including the obligatory use of face masks, social distancing and frequent disinfection of the buses.
