In the midst of the coronavirus crisis, drone technology company Drone Delivery Canada (DDC) is asking the healthcare industry how it can help with the current situation.
The company has put out an urgent request for communication from hospitals, care homes, medical labs and other healthcare organisations to tell DDC how it can use its resources to aid Canada during the pandemic.
DDC president and CEO Michael Zahra notes some of the possible uses for drones, saying: “In the news we are seeing COVID-19 related drone applications around the world and Canada can particularly benefit from having DDC, a drone logistics leader, in its own backyard.
“The current situation is an ideal use-case for our proven drone logistics solution to: limit person-to-person contact; bring needed medical and pharmaceutical supplies to aboriginal, remote, rural and suburban communities; transport blood samples to laboratories for testing and deliver other relevant supplies needed for Canada to effectively manage the current situation.”
In conclusion, he added: “The company commends front-line professionals fighting this pandemic and we hope that you and your loved ones remain safe and healthy as Canada effectively navigates through this successfully.”
Those with suggestions should contact DDC directly at the email address firstname.lastname@example.org.
