Using drones to transport medical supplies has proven much more effective than road transport. A lot more supplies for quarantine and for patients were able to be delivered in a shorter amount of time. This also eliminates the risk of contamination as people aren’t coming into contact with other possibly infected people because these items are being delivered by a drone to where they need to go. This efficiency will come in handy when it comes to saving peoples lives now and in the future.
- The company Antwork has launched an air transportation channel using drones in China.
- In Xiachang, China, these drones have been used to deliver necessary medical supplies to help fight the corona virus epidemic.
- Using the drones, the delivery time of these supplies decreased by 50% in comparison with conventional road travel.
“In order to minimize the contact opportunities between samples and personnel in the delivery, Antwork used its automatic and unmanned operation mode, and drones from the Terra Drone Group, to accelerate the delivery speed.”
