Sanitary tunnel added to Tourist Police station in the Cancun Hotel Zone

Cancun, Q.R. — A sanitary tunnel that will be used by approximately 120 Cancun police members has been donated to the Tourist Police station in the Cancun Hotel Zone.

The sanitary tunnel was installed Tuesday at the Tourist Police center located on Boulevard Kukulcán where both police and citizens entering the building can be sanitized to help avoid the spread of coronavirus infections.

The tunnel was donated by Sanitec, who made the donation to the Secretary of Public Security of Benito Juárez. The tunnel will benefit the more than 100 police elements and 20 administrative staff that enter the area each day.

Rubén Yannick of Sanitec said that this is a type “A” sanitizing tunnel, which has a Sanitization-Disinfection system that helps eliminate up to 99 percent of viruses, bacteria and fungi from the surfaces of people (skin, hair, clothes, accessories, footwear) and objects and / or articles where it could arrive from other environments.

The company has also donated four other sanitation tunnels around the city to The Red Cross Cancun delegation, IMSS specialty clinic, the Benito Juárez City Council, the municipal DIF and now, the Tourist Police.

The director of Tourist Police, César Augusto Escamilla Pacheco says that although the influx of people has been considerably reduced, the sanitary tunnel will benefit those who do come, knowing they will do so in a safer way.
