XAG puts aside £500k for drone spraying disinfection operation in fight against coronavirus


Coronavirus disinfection is at the heart of XAG’s £546k special fund to help aid the response and prevent the disease spreading.

In order to address the urgent need for strengthening disease prevention measures, XAG has set up the 5-million-yuan (£546k) special fund.

It calls for voluntary drone disinfection operations in China, which is hardest hit by the epidemic.

XAG is actively pitching in to combat the contagious coronavirus with innovative technologies, as well as assisting local governments on public health safety.

The fund is committed to providing XAG’s agricultural drone users with technical support to properly carry out aerial coronavirus disinfection sprays that help curb the spread of virus, especially in rural villages with weaker health systems and poorer sanitation conditions.

Operations will target the densely populated outdoor public places and those communities having confirmed or suspected cases of coronavirus.

Another focus of applications is intensive cleaning and disinfection of medical and epidemic prevention vehicles moving between affected and unaffected areas. 

During the nationwide drone disinfection operation, XAG will cover all the spare parts and maintenance expenses for those who voluntarily engage.

Also, strict qualification approval and standard operation procedure (SOP) are implemented to ensure safety and legitimacy. Disinfecting actions would be taken under the permission of Centre for Disease Control and Prevention and relevant government authorities.

According to the Novel Coronavirus Treatment Proposal (Fourth Edition) published by National Health Commission of China, coronavirus is mainly travelled via respiratory droplets, but it can also spread by touching contaminated surfaces.

Other containment work has seen talking drones tell people to put on masks and return home.
