Beyond adhering to strict sanitizing, social distancing, mask wearing protocols, WCT Group wants to provide the best customer experience by upholding the highest standard of safety precautions and measures to keep indoor environment hygienic and safe.
Selena Chua, Chief Executive Officer, WCT Malls Management said, “As a social gathering destination, we understand our customers’ desire to entertain, eat, drink and meet loved ones following the various movement control orders (MCO) that were enforced over the last two years. We want to reduce the risk faced by our visitors when they are exposed to new people each time they shop or gather at our premises. Therefore, we felt the urge to upgrade the malls’ facilities to offer a conducive environment for our patrons to have a pleasant experience as they spend quality time with their loved ones at our Malls.”

*Based on Panasonic verification test in collaboration with the Japan Textile Products Quality and Technology Center (QTEC), the virus titers of novel coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2) and its four variants (Alpha, Beta, Gamma, and Delta) were compared in a 45-liter test space with and without exposure to nanoe™. As a result, the test confirmed an inhibitory effect of more than 99% on all five types of viruses after two hours of exposure. Note that the verification results are based on the test in a closed test environment and not in a space actually in use.
