Srinagar, Apr 3: The Srinagar Municipal Corporation has procured boom sprayers to decontaminate all major roads in Srinagar, a novel idea turned into reality by the efforts of City Mayor Junaid Mattu.
This is yet another significant step the Mayor has taken in the administration’s fight against COVID-19, the pandemic that has rattled world with over a million people already infected byit.
“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.
