“Checking the new area boom sprayers we received today. They are the latest in technology and efficacy and will effectively disinfect a radius of 50 feet while being towed. We will commission these tomorrow and start disinfecting all major roads in the city! #SrinagarFightsBack!” tweeted the Mayor on Thursday.

A boom sprayer is used to spray a chemical over a large area. It is also used to spray water on dirt tracks to keep dust at bay.

Earlier, the Mayor kick-started the fumigation tunnel idea that was well received by the people and the doctors working tirelessly in these extraordinary times.
