As of Monday 5 a.m., Monaco’s sanitation company (Société Monégasque d'Assainissement, or SMA), began disinfecting public spaces in Monaco, including sidewalks and elevators.

The minster of public works, the environment and urban development, Marie-Pierre Gramaglia, said, “It is important that we commit all of our teams and all of our resources to reduce the risk of contamination of Monegasques, residents and employees.”

A team of 30 will work seven days a week using a pine-scented biodegradable bactericide to manually clean elevator buttons, escalator ramps and handrails while a sprinkler-type sytem with an 8000-liter capacity will be used for sidewalks.

The number of people in Monaco confirmed to be Covid-19 postivie doubled over 48 hours, from Friday, March 20, to Sunday, March 23—rising from 12 to 22 active cases.
