Part of: GS Prelims and GS-II – Governance; Health; GS-III – Science and technology 

In News:

  • Ahmedabad railway station becomes the first station of Indian Railways to install a Walk Through Mass Sanitizing Tunnel.

Key takeaways:

  • It is set up to ensure the safety of staff and passengers in view of the COVID-19.
  • The distance can be covered within 10 seconds.
  • The tunnel is fitted with a sensor so that when a passenger approaches the tunnel entrance, it starts fogging automatically with WHO approved sanitizer.
  • The system runs on the principle of Vaporization process. 
  • It converts the sanitizer mixture into vapour which forms a uniform layer over the surface and dries up quickly.
