B'luru civic body deploys drones to fight COVID-19



Bengaluru civic body has deployed drones for spraying disinfectants over all the areas of the city to combat coronavirus, a top official said on Tuesday.

"Disinfectants will be sprayed using drones to sanitise public spaces. Mechanical sweepers to be deployed for intensive cleaning. Jetting machines from BBMP will be employed in this exercise," tweeted Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) Commissioner B.H. Anil Kumar.

Powered by six propellers, the drones have a capacity to lift 15 litre disinfectants provided by the civic body to spray in places when there is more human density.

Six nozzles under the propellers spray the disinfectant from the drone with a flight time of 20 minutes.

A single battery can power the drone to spray the liquid in an area of three acres. IANS
