New Delhi. Vaccine is being seen as the biggest protective shield among the rapidly increasing cases of corona infection in the country. This is the reason why the central government wants to reach the corona vaccine to every citizen of the country. However, there are many such areas where it is not so easy to reach the vaccine on time. This is the reason that preparations are going on to deliver corona vaccine and medicines to such areas by drone. This drone is also called Beyond Visual Line of Sight (BVLOS) medical drone. The trial of medical drone delivery will start in Bengaluru from today. A company named Throttle Aerospace Systems will start the trial lasting 30 to 45 days at Gauribidanur, 80 km from Bangalore, today.
