PRISTINA – An Italian Army's specialist team completed yesterday the disinfection of the 'Svetozar Markovic' primary school in Velika Hoca, in the municipality of Rahovec/Orahovac, to allow the reopening of the institute in compliance with the regulations against Covid-19.
Nine classrooms – one of which used as a Kindergarten – and all common areas were disinfected by means of nebulizers and appropriate active substances just before the new school year.
The project had been initiated by the Austrian Liaison and Monitoring Team operating in the area and was carried out by the Italian Artillerymen of 5th Regiment, all belonging to KFOR Regional Command West.
Through its Civil-Military Cooperation team in the last two months KFOR's Italian-led Command has implemented five assistance projects in favor of all communities living in the Western region of Kosovo, with special focus on education and health.
Since the outbreak of the pandemic the NATO operation has impartially contributed to the local response to Covid19 through a number of actions in support of the Institutions in Kosovo, including the delivery of personal protection equipment and the facilitation of assistance by allied and partner countries.
