The country of China is deploying drones and unmanned robots to disinfect hospitals and public space, enforce quarantine restrictions and deliver medicines in their efforts to stem the tide of this growing epidemic, as the world braces for what is edging toward a global pandemic there is some lessons to be learned from China as to how they are using drone and related technology to battle the disease.
The situation appears to be worsening. The Director-General for the WHO, Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus in Geneva Switzerland said in a press conference, “Although the window of opportunity is narrowing to contain the outbreak, we still have a chance to contain it“, he said. “If we don’t, if we squander the opportunity, then we will have a serious problem on our hands”… he continues, “Although the total number of cases outside China remains relatively small, we are concerned about the number of cases with no clear epidemiological link, such as travel history to China or contact with a confirmed case.”
He also said that it was “very concerning” that Iran has reported 18 cases with 4 deaths in the last two days. There are also also other cases reported around the world including over 30 in the US, with more in Korea and Japan.
While much still needs to be learned about the virus is primarily spread through human to human transmission close contacts generated by sneezing and coughing. However, there is growing evidence that the virus can remain alive on some surfaces for some period of time.
