In a national effort to stop the spread of COVID-19, the SMF’s new initiative, SMF ACTS, distributed one litre of hand sanitisers to each SMF members over a two-day period on 19 March 2020 and 20 March 2020.
Some 100 members brought their own bottles to collect the hand sanitisers, a water-based zero-alcohol solution that is not flammable, toxic or corrosive.
SMF Secretariat staff distributed complimentary hand sanitisers and sold forehead thermometers at cost price to SMF members.
Besides distributing hand sanitisers, the SMF sold forehead thermometers at cost price to SMF members, on a first-come-first-serve basis. Some 70 members purchased the thermometers on the same day.
