Xinchang County is located in Zhejiang province, and Zhejiang province is one of the most severely virus hit provinces with already 1006 patients confirmed 2019-nCoV diagnose as of February 6.

At present, it is in a tense period of national epidemic prevention and control and in order to respond to the needs of epidemic prevention and control.

Antwork actively contacts with local hospitals, supports epidemic prevention with practical actions, fully cooperates with local governments and medical related units, and escorts the timely and rapid delivery of medical samples and protection materials through the deployment of its drone transportation network.

During the epidemic prevention and control period, Antwork took the initiative to take drone RA3 and tr7s as well as unmanned station RH1 as the technical solution.

It was used to do the transportation of medical samples and quarantine materials between Xinchang County People’s Hospital, Xinchang County disease control centre and Dashiju branch of Xinchang County People’s Hospital.

In this operation, the air delivery system provided by Antwork is adopted. Its automatic and unmanned operation mode can significantly reduce the contact opportunities between samples and personnel in the transportation process, and improve the delivery speed.

At the same time, the Antwork branch company (Aerodeli), which undertakes this operation task, has obtained the world’s first urban drone delivery “license” issued by Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) last October.

The sample delivery work will be carried out in strict accordance with the certified operation procedures, which can ensure the safety of medical samples in the transportation process.

Earlier this week, CDP reported on XAG and the coronavirus disinfection operation earlier this week.
