We have written about the need for delivery drones to reduce human contact in order to mitigate the spread of the virus, but unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) can do so much more than just deliver packages. One company in particular has been focused on the development of a drone that can actually monitor and report on individuals with symptoms of the virus.
