Like each country has its own forces / organisations for peoples safety, they should also implement a drone wing in micro level in city or cluster level, the only thing which we should avoid in this current epidemic situation is human to human interaction, drones are the best solutions for this situation. As people are in lock-down situation a perfect drone infrastructure could help in delivering the essential goods quickly and also for the quick surveillance of people gathering or violation of the current situation. the title is named as syndrone as this this drone infrastructure involves a lot of national security issues or the problem of theft or injury, this should be used only while in cases of emergencies or epidemics , and fro delivering essentials only. Who would throw stones on a drone which is delivering food while he is hungry? The rest of the time the the drone infrastructure can be shut down or limited for only urban purposes. the process should be fully automated with the help of an app . if we get on this ides and start the process we can end up with a more efficient solution next time when we hit with an epidemic or a natural disaster

What is the need are you focusing on?

As humans are delivering the essentials there may be a chance of spreading the COVID-19 , and we are risking their lives , we have the technology and the gap visible is only scaling up it to the bigger level with proper security measures. once this kind of drone infrastructure is established with fully automated technology we can explore so many possibilities.

What is the best example of business adaption you’ve seen in response to COVID-19?

A pan seller in India has delivered a Pan (usually 50 g) in weight has delivered it with a small drone , and the person has been arrested by the local police. This is the whatsapp forward which I got . Don't know the truth in it but was a great idea.

What is your profession?

I am a design engineer working on sheet-metal equipment projects for U.S. based clients.
