Tamil Nadu to soon use drones to disinfect state against coronavirus

The battle against coronavirus has been tough for India, especially for the people who strive hard to keep it under control, such as doctors, nurses, policemen and sanitation workers.
Sanitising every nook and corner of an entire city or village can take a toll on one’s own health as well. Cleaning every inch in one day can be challenging, as one person can cover limited space in a day.
Sanitising building, especially the high-rises can be challenging as well. The life of a sanitation worker can be at risk, at the same time.
In order to help the workers, the Garuda Aerospace and student engineers from Agni College of Technology in Chennai joined hands with the Tamil Nadu government, and have come up with a bright idea.
They had demonstrated earlier, last week to the Tamil Nadu government, a plan to sanitise the state using drones. Around 500 pilots are to use 300 drones with payloads to disinfect public places like hospitals, metro stations and roads across Tamil Nadu.
The trial run took place at the Rajiv Gandhi Government General Hospital on March 23 and 24.
