Abstract

This paper evaluates the vital role of drones in the case of the current pandemic situation COVID – 19. The main objective of this paper is to assess how drones can play a crucial role at this time of crisis by containing the spread of the virus. Drones or unmanned vehicles have been in use for many purposes during natural calamities and disasters. These include earthquakes, flooding, Tsunami, etc. Here, in this paper, we emphasize how drones can be used to contain the current COVID -19 pandemic by spraying disinfectant on various surfaces. Since the coronavirus is a fast-spreading disease by means of person to person contact and surface contact, it has to be contained to a large extent to avoid further spreading of the virus. Drones play a crucial role in containing the surface spread of COVID – 19 by spraying disinfectants in hotspot areas such as malls, hospitals, high rise buildings, and other public places. Here, we have also discussed the importance of sanitization to stop the spread of the virus.
