FIRST EVER DRONE FLIGHT CARRYING CORONAVIRUS PATIENT SAMPLE IN ESTONIA

The initiative was a joint one organized by the North Estonia Medical Center (PERH) and technology company Threod Systems, BNS reports.

The flight commenced at Heltermaa harbor at 2 p.m. Thursday, arriving 27 minutes later at Rohuküla on the mainland. A ferry journey between the same two points would have taken over an hour to cover the 12 nautical miles.

A lab is testing the sample of one Hiiumaa resident for coronavirus and will return the result that evening.
