Drones are being used in this country to yell at people to say indoors during COVID-19 pandemic

Some people seem to be quite relaxed amidst the COVID-19 outbreak.

So relaxed, that they are freely walking about, going about their day as usual.

If you’re reading this, I hope you’re not one of them and are reading this in the comfort of your own home.

If you are, good on you for doing the right thing. But the same can’t be said for some people in Spain.


How are the cops combating this? They are using drones to shout at people to go home.

Spain has entered into a state of emergency on Friday, March 13. Ordering its citizens to stay at home except for emergency trips like stocking up on supplies. But of course, people are taking advantage of it.

BBC world managed to capture footage of police officers using drones attached with loudspeakers to yell citizens who are outside to go home.

It kinda feels like something out of a sci-fi movie, where authorities are using robots and drones to keep people in line. But in the case of the COVID-19 pandemic, this has to be done.
