Ghana is using drones to deliver vaccines
It’s with the Covid-19 vaccination programs in progress that difficulties are beginning to be encountered in getting vaccines to less developed countries and remote areas. Well, a San Francisco startup named Zipline seems to have found a solution and is already applying it in Ghana with the collaboration of the local government.
Zipline is making use of drones to deliver these vaccines, with doctors being able to use the company’s app to carry out and follow their vaccine orders. Deliveries began on Tuesday, the 2nd, and that day alone 4,500 doses were distributed to rural communities in the Ashanti region.
As the Business Insider notes, it is believed that the total number of vaccines distributed by Zipline using drones can reach 2.5 million doses.
