South Korean drone display reminds citizens to wear a mask and wash hands
A South Korean drone display has reminded citizens to wear a face mask and keep socially distanced during the coronavirus pandemic.
The display, which took place above the capital of Seoul, saw more than 300 drones take flight for a 10-minute show.
The drones displayed messages reminding people to wash their hands as well as thanking residents for staying safe.
The display, organised by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport was intended to thank frontline healthcare workers, with a message saying “Thanks to you” flashing in the sky.
The drones also formed a silhouette of the Korean peninsula alongside the message “Cheer up Republic of Korea”.
The event was not advertised ahead of time so people did not crowd to view it.
Posting the video on YouTube, the government wrote: “Thank you for the efforts of the people and medical staff.
“We express our gratitude and respect to all who suffer from Covid-19.”
We know everyone is suffering under the Tories - but the Canary is a vital weapon in our fight back, and we need your support
The Canary Workers’ Co-op knows life is hard. The Tories are waging a class war against us we’re all having to fight. But like trade unions and community organising, truly independent working-class media is a vital weapon in our armoury.
The Canary doesn’t have the budget of the corporate media. In fact, our income is over 1,000 times less than the Guardian’s. What we do have is a radical agenda that disrupts power and amplifies marginalised communities. But we can only do this with our readers’ support.
So please, help us continue to spread messages of resistance and hope. Even the smallest donation would mean the world to us.
