Unmanned vehicles and drones deliver supplies to key areas

Unmanned buses and self-driving trucks deliver supplies into medium and high-risk areas, ensuring a sufficiency of necessary supplies for the isolated residents and effectively avoiding cross-infection among frontline staff at the same time.

Drones also play their part in this battle. They help to deliver medical supplies to the lockdown areas, work as "broadcasters" to promote anti-pandemic knowledge and mobilize people to do nucleic acid test orderly. In addition, they also serve as "supervisors" to prevent quarantined people from going out of their house for no reason.
