Medicine by Drones: A major breakthrough in the use of drone technology in the country. Attempts to rapidly and safely deliver emergency medicines to remote areas have been successful. Medicines were delivered on Friday (November 26) to a primary health center 25 km away by drone in Meghalaya state. This makes Meghalaya the first state to use drone technology in emergency medicine delivery. This was stated by the Chief Minister of the state, Conrad K. Sangma himself.

Conrad posted this on his social media handle. He said, “Today we delivered medicines by e-VTOL drone from Nangstoin to the Primary Health Center in Mawet, Meghalaya. In the first program of its kind, the drone was able to fly 25 km in less than 25 minutes. We were able to send the medication to a health center far away. This is the first such program in India. Drone technology can change the future of healthcare, ”he said in a post. This is the only project that will facilitate the supply of medicines to critical areas where transport facilities are not available.

In the Northeast, drones began supplying anti-Covid-19 vaccines

Last month, Union Health Minister Mansukh Mandavia launched efforts to supply the Kovid-19 vaccine to the northeast by drones. The ICMR drone response, the Outreach in the North East (I-drone) program, is a supply chain to ensure that life-saving Kovid vaccines reach everyone, officials said. The program is in line with the government's commitment to 'Anthyodaya' in health, with the aim of making vaccinations accessible to even the last person in the country.

Mandavya said this was the first time in South Asia that a 'Make in India' drone had been used to deliver the Kovid-19 vaccine 15 km away in 12-15 minutes. The vaccines were transported from Bishnupur District Hospital in Manipur to Loktak Lake on Karang Island for injection to beneficiaries in PHC.

Mandavya said the actual distance by road between these areas is 26 km. Today at PHC, 10 beneficiaries will receive the first dose and eight will receive the second dose. The Union Health Minister thanked Prime Minister Narendra Modi and said that under his leadership, the country was developing very fast. He said that today is a historic day and it has shown us how technology can make life easier as well as bring about social change.

He said that India is a country of geographical diversity where essentials can be delivered to the last mile by drones. Mandavya says we can use drones to collect blood samples, to deliver important life-saving drugs. This technique is likely to be used even in extreme conditions. Mandavya explained that this technology can prove important in addressing the challenges in health care, especially as it is a big step tow
