In the USA, drones that can detect symptoms for COVID-19 from the air have completed their first test flights. In cooperation with Australian researchers, the Canadian aviation company Draganfly has developed a drone that can detect coronavirus symptoms from the air.


The drone will be equipped with a specialized sensor and an image recognition system that can monitor temperature, heart and respiratory rate and detect people who sneeze and cough in crowds, offices, airports, cruise ships, retirement homes and other places where groups of people work or gather. The first tests for the “pandemic drones” have already been conducted.

In DRONES AGAINST CORONA, Draganfly CEO Cameron Chell explains how the pandemic drone can be used to remotely monitor and detect people with infectious respiratory diseases.
