OMI Environmental Solutions is offering up its drones for the disinfection of large indoor spaces like sports venues, potentially making them safe to use again amid the coronavirus pandemic.

The oil spill response specialist claims its Drone Disinfection System disperses a mist of EPA-approved agents, killing COVID-19 and 99.9% of bacteria within 60 seconds.

Its drones can disperse coronavirus-killing disinfectant inside large open areas such as stadiums, sports arenas, convention centres, warehouses, cinemas, cafeterias, gyms and other high-ceilinged rooms.

OMI says its staff receive daily health and safety briefs, as well as before each job.
