From Vaccine Delivery to Medical Supplies India’s First Drone Trial Begins Today


Hyderabad. If you think that the drone is just a tempting toy or it is too much, then it can be used for courier or pizza delivery. So you should change your thinking. In many parts of the country, the delivery of the vaccine of Kovid by drone is being seriously considered. Especially in such areas where people are not easy to reach, nothing like this has happened so far, but sincere efforts have been started on it.

The Telangana government has launched a project about how practical it can be to supply the vaccine using drones. In this way people will get speed in getting the vaccine. Flipkart and Dunzo are with the Telangana government in this investigation.

On the other hand, the Indian Council of Medical Research has also called a tender for a drone operator, whose aim is to prepare a model of vaccine delivery that makes it easy to deliver the vaccine in areas where it is difficult to reach.
