As people are locked inside their homes, they are primarily responsible for their personal hygiene and care to prevent the spread of COVID-19. However, central/state governments and various civic bodies are undertaking various measures to disinfect outdoor spaces and public infrastructure, which is a massive resource-intensive task. General Aeronautics (GA), a startup incubated by the Society for Innovation and Development, IISc, is helping the Bruhat Bengaluru Mahanagara Palike (BBMP) in accelerating the process by using drones to disinfect hard-to-reach areas.
