Talking drone for the safety of Marikina shoppers

If there are misting drones used in Pasig to disinfect, Marikina has its own drone to battle the COVID-19 crisis. In a report from a news show 24 Oras, the said drone features a thermal scanner with a monitor. 

There's also a speaker in which the announcements or reminders are being broadcasted. Maki Pulido, the reporter from the said show explained that the monitor will flash if the person has a fever or not. 

The drone that was used in this project seems to be a DJI Enterprise 2 Mavic Dual. According to a media release, this type of drone allows users to measure temperatures and conveniently store images and temperature data for efficient reporting and analysis.

To track body heat, it utilizes FLIR Lepton Thermal microcamera. The accessory that was added to this drone is a 100-decibel speaker that can play up to ten messages.

This technology is just an additional action to implement social distancing protocols during this COVD-19 pandemic. The local government, along with an anonymous donor, has also built a disinfection tent to spray shoppers with disinfectant whenever they went in or step out of the area.

Aside from that, they are preparing to convert a building as one of its super health centers into COVID-19 testing facility after the Department of Health (DOH) rejected the city's laboratory due to its location.

Marikina is already looking to convert a building of one of its "super health centers" into a COVID-19 testing facility after the Department of Health (DOH) turned down the city's laboratory due to its location.

Department of Health's (DOH) online tracker reported that seven patients who have been confirmed with COVID-19 came from Marikina. 

What do you think of Marikina's move?
