“Pandemic Drones” Can Now Detect Fever and Coughing

    The COVID-19 outbreak is proving to be the Trojan horse that justifies the ushering in of the surveillance state. We’ve noted how governments and corporations are quickly deploying big data and spy tools to monitor people during the pandemic.

    The war on terror, the war on drugs, the war on illegal immigration, and now the war on COVID-19: all start out as legitimate responses but then are used by politicians to increase the surveillance state and erode any freedoms citizens have left.

    What’s coming to America in the not too distant future is a full-blown surveillance state, that could be on par with China’s. In particular, we want to show ZeroHedge readers what could be coming down the pipe: That is, “pandemic drones” outfitted with specialized sensor and computer vision system that can fly around cities and detect if people have elevated body temperatures, respiratory rates, as well as to identify if people are sneezing and coughing (all signs of a COVID-19 carrier)

    A US-based drone company called Dragonfly is spearheading the effort to build a drone network across public areas to detect infected people. The drone network is called the “global early warning system” that would be able to spot the first signs of a pandemic.

    Dragonfly was recently selected by Vital Intelligence, a healthcare data services, and deep learning company in conjunction with the University of South Australia, to “immediately commercialize” pandemic drones to monitor people in public areas.

    “Draganfly is honored to work on such an important project given the current pandemic facing the world with COVID-19. Health and respiratory monitoring will be vital for not only detection, but also utilizing the data to understand health trends. As we move forward, drones and autonomous technology doing detection will be an important part of ensuring public safety,” said Andy Card, Director of Draganfly and former Secretary of Transportation and White House Chief of Staff.

    As shown below, the pandemic drone can easily detect breathing rate, heart rate, body temperature, and if the person is sneezing and coughing – all signs that could point to a COIVD-19 carrier.

    Here’s Dragonfly’s video showing the drone in action:

    On Monday, former FDA chief Scott Gottlieb told CNBC that the US must build a “massive surveillance system” to detect where the virus might be spreading next – and maybe one of the best ways to monitor large swaths of the population could be through the use of pandemic drones across major US metropolitan cities.

      1. Ahh…. That nice… We’re not allowed to call it the Wuhan Virus or China Virus, but they want to use it to turn our country into CHINA!

      2. Howdy Y’all,
        Know the Enemy…just up at Zerohedge; MUST READ,

        ” I Found The Source Of COVID-19…”

      3. Again, if you live in a place where this shit happen’s your in the wrong place. Move to the red grasshoppers! Wall off Kalifornia, Colorado! Life is much better lol.

        • Howdy Genius,
          Noooooo….let then STAY where they are. Nuff said.


      4. You seriously think they want this to end?

      5. If you have ant critical thinking ability at all then you know at least 40-50% of the population has been exposed to the (boogie) virus. Well now, we should have more like 100,000 dead huh? The fake assed statistics are insane! Die of a heart attack but check postive for CV? Its a CV caused death! Die of cancer and test positive for CV? Its a CV death! Fooking biggest load of bullsheet I have ever seen! If you are falling for this SCAM you deserve to perish (and thank god for it)…

      6. Dragonfly! Now where have I heard that before?

        Fires on top of Google servers building comes to mind, and the congressional testimony.

        Back to DARPA I suppose.

        Who’s still buying this?

        Alex Jones was right. Biometrics is here.

        I’ll choose liberty instead and please die today.

      7. has anyone thought of mass refugees from out of state coming into their area. when food is scarce in an area people will leave and look for food that might be in your community it wont take long for word to get out your area has resources. id suggest buying anything you can food wise. im seeing this coming in the near future. dont believe all the stories of hope on fox news. the situation is grim. just no one is really suffering just yet but the hurt is coming with people out of work and stiff competition for resources its gonna get ugly. the golden hoard will run over your community and leave scorched earth.




      9. If I were so inclined I would opt for a .22 or .25 caliber air rifle, quiet and plenty powerful enough to down the drone.

        In urban areas string fishing line across buildings at various angles and from high points to low points, this will make flying the drone impossible and it will hit the fishing line and be taken down.

        Governments world wide are using this PLANNEDemic to violate rights and enslave their people.

        Fight back now or forever be enslaved, my 2 cents.

      10. you allow -Tech -Politicians -Media power over you?
        You believe these -Liars -Thieves -Control Freaks?

        Here is funny one of the clown world you live in.
        YouTube: “Virginia shop employee ARRESTED for wounding ROBBER”
        Communist allowed to remain in office over you. You allow these idiots.

        Maybe the ChiCom Flu hoax is clearing the streets so as to allow the 5G weapon deployment? Drones are nothing. Just wait until they can cut your water off from 1000 miles away.
        Water is Life.

        All the TECH is designed to track trace control and 5g is to KILL you.Genocide.
        Currently cities locked down
        and now they are messing with infrastructure.
        Drive around the city and you will see this.
        Are you seeing this at your location too?

        Don’t stay indoors. Don’t stay at home. Get your camera. Record what you see. THEY want to ISOLATE you.
        Why? To tag your biometrics with satellite? Build database?

        How can you post a picture here? I never see pictures posted here like other sites? Why? Just a fed honey pot?

      11. TIP: Leave your cellphone at home when you go out. Pay cash. Don’t use store cards.

        Your Tech Tyrant Monopoly keeping track of the sheep.
        They track you so you can be sheared.
        Then you will be slaughtered when no longer useful.

        Bill Gates is a psychopath out to murder humanity. Many of these “techies” are sick and NWO-Globalist communists.

        They are now actually telling you and showing you the EVIL they are doing and will Do in near future. Evil in your face.
        Yet ALL of you refuse to get off the TechTit of MicroSoft-Google and smart cell phone technology.

        Like any other addict you just can’t help yourselves from using. Just like dopeheads that stick needles in arm to destroy themselves.

        Portland Oregon has a meatwagon that makes rounds daily, collects corpses from the Mexican Cartel imported dope
        overdoses. The young people know Dope will KILL them. But they still want to “party”.

        That is EXACTLY how so called modern people are with the cell phone and other technology. Cell phones cook your brain. 5g will kill you faster. But no one will abstain from tech.

        There is a BEAST control grid System that will be a weapon. That is 5g.

        Get the wi-fi, cell, tech, out of your life. But does it matter?

        Soon the Internet of things 5G Beast System will surrounding you EVERYWHERE. And Musk has his 5G sattelite constellation juicing you.

        Technology Population Control Grid with the 5g kill weapons for genocide. You won’t listen will you?

        Enjoying your New Amerikka?
        Now be good Amerikkans and turn in your firearms, “for Safety”. Congress has new bill going through calling for 50% tax on Guns and Ammo taxes. Can’t allow armed sheep. It is “for safety.” just like your ChiCom Bioweapon lockdown, it is “for your safety.”

        Maybe the INTENTIONAL economic destruction of your Nation? Biowarfare chicom flu used as Economic Weapon by ChiCom CCP? Media are CCP accomplices.

      13. Thing is, guys, this behaves like acute toxoplasmosis and responds to toxoplasmosis treatment. Kind of makes you think.

      14. So it isn’t the highly contagious and fatal SARS virus wrapped in EBOLA and AIDS envelopes that you claimed it to be Tyler? But more like spider eggs in bubble yum? Never mind. That is quite a miscalculation, but you sold a lot of soap as a journo terrorist after destroying everyone’s life! With your feet on the ground and your head up your ass try this trick and spin it! You’re full of shit and that’s all that’s in it and you’ll ask yourself, where is my mind?
