‘China’s drone army has swooped on the nation’s virus-stricken streets to warn citizens to wear face masks or go home, as other drones have sprayed disinfectants over virus-stricken villages and cities.
Vigilantes and government officials have reportedly used speakers on drones to hound others, as coronavirus spreads to every region of the communist state.
Footage published by a government-run newspaper shows people being told to ‘go home’ by drones to avoid the virus or put on their face masks.
Another clip distributed by the state shows silent drones spraying disinfectant over cars and on pavements. It is thought that the machines were filmed ordering people around in Inner Mongolia, and spraying disinfectant in the coastal provinces of Jilin, Shandon and Zhejiany.
And other footage published by the state has captured drones hovering several metres above the ground as disinfectant liquid is sprayed from the underside of each machine.
It is hoped that the disinfectant will prevent the killer virus from spreading further although it is not yet known how effective this will be.’
