Zoomlion, an environment-oriented company, has begun a spraying exercise in the Tamale Metropolis to rid the city of mosquitoes and consequently help reduce to the barest minimum the incidence of malaria.

The exercise comes under the National Malaria Control Programme aimed at stopping the spread of the disease.


The spraying gang of the company has already sprayed the Tamale Teaching Hospital gutters and other breeding grounds of mosquitoes in parts of the metropolis.

Mr. Zakaria Abdul-Rashid, Regional Vector Control Officer of Zoomlion, told the GNA that the company would undertake similar exercises in the other districts of the Northern Region.

He said the company had imported adequate and efficacious chemicals for the spraying, adding: “We will evaluate the impact of the spraying after the exercise and re-spray if need be.”

Statistics from the Tamale Teaching Hospital indicate that about 5,872 cases of malaria were recorded at the Out Patients’ Department between January and May.
