Inc42 Shots | Unauthorised Drone Delivery Draws Police Action After Viral TikTok Video

In the battle against coronavirus, drones have become an important ally of the government. From disinfecting public areas to monitoring the situation, drones are helping the government to curb the spread of coronavirus in India.

In many places, these drones are used to even deliver medicines and other essential items.
