Interesting: Malawi Now Using Drones To Help Curb The Spread Of Cholera


Malawi is making progress in its efforts to stop the spread of cholera and it is all thanks to drones.

Scientists are using drones to identify high-risk areas in the capital, Lilongwe.

The water-borne disease has spread into six districts since the outbreak was first identified in November with at least four people dying and more than 340 cases being reported.

These drones help map areas that are densely populated and collect data for health workers to implement interventions against the spread of the disease.


The drones will provide aerial imagery that will also pinpoint areas that urgently need public awareness campaigns.

The first drone mapping took place in Likuni area, one of the densely populated townships in Lilongwe.
