A press note from the secretary to the government of Nagaland, Lhouchalie Viya, on Thursday said that the first-of-its-kind initiative was made to spread awareness on COVID-19 and that it will be utilising drones to relay dos and don’ts.

It said that on Thursday, drones had taken off in the following colonies: Indoor stadium, Cathedral, Oking hospital, School Education Department, SCERT and Industries Office.

While it is likely to continue sending drones to create mass awareness, a drone seen above Pezieliecie-Kezieke areas in Kohima on Thursday between 6.30 pm and 7 pm was heard announcing the do’s and don’ts of containing the spread of the deadly virus in Nagamese.
