Tunisia receives drones from China to aid COVID-19 fight

The Ministry of Health and the COVID-19 Task Force in Tunisia have received Chinese drones, equipped with temperature sensors and loud speakers. The drones are donated by the “Telnet” group as part of strengthening the Ministry’s logistical services against the spread of coronavirus.

The project is a partnership between the Tunisian engineering and technology consulting company and the Chinese company DJI.

The drones will support the Tunisian government’s effort in the fight against the pandemic. They are expected to be put to use during the country’s current lockdown.
