Gurugram, April 3, 2020: 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 sanitisation drive for Gurugram Police. Through this initiative, Droom has extended its Germ-Shield technology to deeply sanitise the fleet of cars and bikes currently used by Gurugram Police.

Proven to be effective against SARS and other droplet-based viruses for up to three months, it guards surfaces against harmful microbes by inhibiting the growth of microorganisms such as bacteria, algae, yeast, mould, and mildew. The technology polymerizes (bonds) to any surface resulting in a strong, durable, invisible and effective barrier with a 99.99 per cent microbial reduction rate.
Speaking on the initiative, Sandeep Aggarwal, Founder & CEO – Droom, said, “Just like health workers, the country’s police force is also at the forefront of the fight against the coronavirus. This fleet sanitisation 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 three months, keeping in mind the challenge that Gurugram Police faces while dealing with the pandemic, we will be sanitising their several vehicles on a daily basis until the nation achieves victory over COVID-19. ”
