In a bid to protect the frontline warriors amid the Coronavirus crisis, Droom, India’s largest and pioneering online automobile transactional marketplace has announced a fleet sanitization drive for Gurugram Police. Through this initiative, Droom has extended its Germ-Shield technology to deeply sanitize the fleet of cars and bikes currently used by Gurugram Police.
Germ-shield, a technology launched under Droom Health, is an antimicrobial surface protection shield for cars and two-wheelers. Proven to be effective against SARS and other droplet-based viruses for up to 3 months, it guards surfaces against harmful microbes by inhibiting the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria, algae, yeast, mold, and mildew. The technology polymerizes (bonds) to any surface resulting in a strong, durable, invisible and effective barrier with a 99.99% microbial reduction rate.
Speaking on the initiative, Sandeep Aggarwal, Founder & CEO – Droom, said, “Just like the health workers, the country’s police force is also at the forefront of the fight against Coronavirus. This fleet sanitization drive for Gurugram Police is a part of Droom’s contribution towards the protection of these brave warriors and real heroes of our society. Our Germ-Shield solution will inhibit the accumulation of on automobile surfaces, ensuring utmost hygiene and protection against the fast-growing virus spread. While our technology provides safety from viruses for 3 months, keeping in mind the challenge that Gurugram police faces while dealing with the Pandemic, we will be sanitizing their several vehicles on a daily basis until the nation achieves victory over COVID-19 ”
Commenting on the sanitization drive, Mrs. Nitika Gahlaut, IPS DCP Headquarters, Gurugram, said, “We are grateful to Droom for launching this service and protecting us against the highly-contagious Coronavirus. It is our duty to ensure the health and safety of citizens and staying protected from the virus ourselves is a big part of protecting others. A major element of containing the Coronavirus contagion is inhibiting surface-to-surface transmission, and Droom’s Germ-Shield technology is a big step towards this goal.”
