As healthcare experts race to contain the virus and save lives, time is of the essence. Technology leaders see autonomous
drones as a valuable part of the solution to speed the pace of testing and treatment for infected patients.
Workhorse, UPS and the technology test team, conducted exercises over three days in April 2020 in Virginia. The tests evaluated the drone’s ability to support various use-cases to speed and assist the U.S. healthcare system during the novel Coronavirus crisis.
Findings and recommendations will be included in a report to the White House.
