BEIJING, March 8 (Xinhua) -- Chinese ride-hailing giant Didi Chuxing said Saturday that it plans to provide free protective plastic films for police vehicles nationwide amid the epidemic.
To date, 28 cities have started to install the protective facilities including Wuhan, the epicenter of the outbreak. Over 1,000 police vehicles have been equipped with the films to avoid cross-infection between drivers and passengers in the back seats.
Didi will also take charge of the replacement of the films.
Since Feb. 11, Didi has required all its drivers to wear face masks and report their temperatures every day. The company has also invested 100 million yuan (14.4 million U.S. dollars) to install protective films in contracted vehicles across the country.
