Drones shouting profanities may help with social distancing: Italian mayor
Those annoying buzzing drones that enthusiasts have been flying around the skies in recent years are now set to take a role in the coronavirus crisis.
An Italian mayor has suggested they should be used to shout profanities at people ignoring stay-at-home rules.
And in Australia, a team is hard at work developing a pandemic drone that monitors temperature, heart and respiratory rates.
Mayor of Messina in Sicily, Cateno De Luca, says in a Facebook video message: "I can't wait for it ... drones everywhere."
The drones would broadcast "my voice that will say as soon as I catch you, 'Where the f*** are you going? Go back home!'. This will be the voice of the drone," he says.
