Since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government of Haryana has been putting in best efforts to safeguard the citizens as well as the frontline workers in the state. They have been ensuring that proper medical infrastructure is made available to the frontline workers and proper hygiene is maintained at public facilities. Through this alliance, RB is assisting the state Government in their efforts to contain the spread of infection by disinfecting public utilities including hospitals, across the state.
Commenting on the initiative, Tushara Shankar, Head- CSR and External Relations, RB Hygiene, India said, “It is critical for us to step up and reach out to governments during these times.
