We are seeing people jostle for fumigation in the phase of the COVID-19 pandemic. Is this what we really need?
Before you buy a Fumigation Machine…
Please Understand the Terms :
” the process of cleaning something, especially with a chemical, in order to destroy micro-organisim…”
Disinfection generally works well against micro-organism. Though less effective when compared with sterilization – which is an extreme physical or chemical process that kills all types of life.
“is a method of pest control that completely fills an area with gaseous pesticides—or fumigants—to suffocate or poison the pests within. …”
Fumigation generally works against vectors such as flies, insect, termite or pests.
YES, you have every right to fumigate your home or office.
BUT IT DOES NOT PROTECT YOU AGAINST COVID-19.
The Larger issue we are addressing here is not against purchase of these unwanted device’s (even though it is a scam of different commercial magnitude.) but how human psychology works when they buy same or unable to buy same –
- When People End up stocking / buying these un-called and un-wanted devices, it naturally lowers their GUARD.
- It gives a false sense/impression of security which is not protecting against the COVID-19.
- Drain on Financial Resources in these uncertain times.
- Raised level of Anxiety in those who are unable to afford same.
- Failing to understand that, “We are in this Together.”
REMEMBER AS per WHO(World Health Organizations) Guidelines – to stop spread of COVID-19 Pandemic, to be observed by all of us is
- Face Mask Covering.
- Physical Distancing.
- Hand Wash with Soap or Sanitizer.
As can be observed, in regulatory documentation issued by : Government of India
Ministry of Health and Family Welfare
Directorate General of Health Services

The Word “FUMIGATION” is no where mentioned in 6 Page Detailed Guidelines
Yet, common people are being mislead in buying FUMIGATORS as a tool for protection against COVID-19.
