Sanitation standards to improve at the Chattrapti Shibaji Maharaj Terminus with Central Railways' newly installed foot-operated hand wash machine at platform 14. These zero contact hand washbasins have further been lodged at 3 other railway stations in Mumbai under the Corporate Social Responsibility of the Railways. These machines will allow access to 4 people at one point while maintaining both social distancing and no contact.
Railway upgrades health screening
The public relations officer informed how the machine dispenses both liquid hand-wash and water when foot pedalled, which ensures and promotes maximum hygiene with minimal contact. The machines have been designed so that 4 passengers can wash their house simultaneously without breaking the optimum social distance during the pandemic. These machines will further be installed at all suburban railway stations in the Mumbai.
Besides this, the Central Railway stations of Dadar, Kurla, Ghatkopar, Thane and Dombivali have also organised health screening camps where people can get their pulse rate, oxygen saturation and blood pressure checked. The reports of these tests will be examined by doctors and then will be provided to the passengers.
Artificial Intelligence to the rescue
After Western Railways, the Zonal Railways has also manufactured and employed the medical robot 'Jivika' to surveil the temperature, blood pressure, heart rate and oxygen saturation of the patients.
Let's hope all these measures work successfully and make commute, safer in the city.
