G B NAGAR/GHAZIABAD: Massive sanitisation drives have been started, from Thursday, in and around the identified hotspots areas of Gautam Buddh Nagar and Ghaziabad districts with the help of high-pressure water mist machines and other innovative technologies. Officials said that the sealing period will be used for active case finding and intensive sanitisation with containment of people.

In an innovative plan using technology to reduce the risk of sanitation workers getting exposed to deadly novel Coronavirus, or COVID-19, the Noida Authority has devised a plan to use drones to spray disinfectant.

“Each drone camera has payload of five litres of disinfectants and can cover an area of 2-3 kilometers in its one-time air drive of 25 minutes.
