Colombian Food Warehouses Disinfected for Coronavirus


Colombian authorities ordered Bogota’s Corobastos warehouses closed for two days so as to be completely disinfected as a precaution against the spread of COVID-19, Friday, April 10.

The warehouses serve as Colombia’s largest food storage center, able to store about 13 tons of produce before being transferred to local grocery stores and markets throughout the country.

Police wearing masks drove water cannon trucks that sprayed water and detergent on the exterior of the warehouses, as dozens of cleaners wearing protective gear scrubbed the floors and walls of the buildings with brushes.
