Drones Send Messages on Social Distancing to South Wales Public

Officials in South Wales are using drones to keep the public informed during the novel coronavirus lockdown, local media reported.

According to the Neath Port Talbot Council, the drones are equipped with speakers to send messages to people who are “not following government measures on social distancing.”

The council reminded South Wales residents to stay at home except for trips for food, medical trips, exercise, or essential work.

In Derbyshire, police are using drones to spot people making non-essential trips outside.
