'Police intend to regularly make use of the new drone technology'

Police have achieved success while using drones to monitor people's movement and make sure that they're following lockdown rules in Debhata upazila of Satkhira.

Locals were reprimanded by police on Wednesday morning for violating the social distancing regulations that have been put place to contain the spread of the new coronavirus.

Besides, tasks that deliberately put law enforcement in danger of contracting the virus such as market monitoring and enforcing social distancing measures are also possible thanks to the new drone technology. 

“Police intend to regularly make use of the new drone technology to not only prevent loitering but also to monitor local markets as well as ensure social distancing,” said Debhata police station OC Biplob Kumar Saha and Senior Assistant Superintendent of Police (Debhata-circle) Sheikh Yasin Ali.

In the last 24 hours, 3 more people have tested positive for the new coronavirus, taking the total number of confirmed cases to 139 in Khulna division. 

However, Satkhira recorded the first confirmed case of the deadly infectious virus in the district on Thursday.

Satkhira Civil Surgeon Dr Hussain Shafayet said: “We have so far collected 484 samples of suspected coronavirus patients from the district, all of which were sent to the Institute of Epidemiology, Disease Control and Research in Dhaka.”
