Drones have been used in many parts of the world to help with the current coronavirus outbreak, from spraying disinfectant in China to posting drone footage on Twitter of UK citizens flouting the lockdown.
A mayor in Italy has taken another novel, drone-based approach to encouraging Messina residents to stay indoors during the coronavirus crisis, which has affected Italy worse than any other country.
In a video from Euronews, mayor Cateno de Luca can be heard shouting profanities at Italians venturing outdoors through speakers attached to a drone.
“Where the **** are you going? Go home,” he tells two men in the video, who run in apparent fear from the drone.
