Prevention of COVID-19:Disinfection at CIAW
As part of the actions planned for the resumption of face-to-face activities, and to preserve the health of the students and the crew of the Admiral Wandenkolk Instruction Center (CIAW), on August 5, 2020, the Marine Operations Group of Nuclear, Biological, Chemical and Radiological Defense (GptOpFuzNav-DefNBQR) carried out a preventive disinfection application in multiple CIAW buildings.
In order to properly clean and disinfect surfaces and equipment, the application was carried out by 23 military personnel trained in NBQR Defense procedures. Areas treated include Female and Male Sleeping Quarters, Students Common Areas, Dining Halls, and the Training Facility for Officers. In addition to traditional disinfectants, SD Labs’ SD-ST long-lasting self-disinfecting antimicrobial coatings were used in all areas. SD ST, which has demonstrated effectiveness in multiple laboratory tests and is approved by Anvisa in Brazil to kill COVID 19, effectively eliminates 99.99% of microorganisms for up to 90 days per application.
