To avoid human contact, facemasks will be delivered to hospitals in Mexico by drone. Donations of antibacterial gel, facemasks, gloves, 3D-printed face shields, and other basic supplies have been delivered by unmanned aircraft to healthcare workers, says Sincronia Logistica.
Facemasks delivered by drone to hospitals in Mexico
To eliminate the risk of contagious human beings, a Mexican company has launched a drone delivery service to get clean medical supplies to hospitals during the coronavirus pandemic. Mexico-City based firm Sincronia Logistica has begun deploying unmanned drones to deliver personal protective gear and other essential equipment to public hospitals in the central state of Queretaro, north of the capital, reports Hindustan Times.
The drones help to stem the spread of the coronavirus by reducing human interaction to deliver facemasks and other medical supplies.
“In addition to reducing time, we’ve also reduced human contact,” said Diego Garcia, director of business excellence at Sincronia Logistica.
Juana Angelica Garcia, director of the El Marques public hospital in the city of Queretaro, the state capital said that doctors value the service.
“In a situation where you need medical materials supplied fast without risking the health of the people involved, drone delivery has become a comprehensive and sure-fire option,” she said in a statement.
