Opportunities for Medical Drones During the COVID-19 Pandemic


As millions of Americans are following shelter-in-place orders, there are others that are working around the clock to make sure groceries are delivered, and medical professionals receive the equipment they need. Across the globe, commercial drones are being used to supplement traditional supply chains and provide goods and services where they are needed...except in the United States.

In a short webinar hosted by Karen M. Czarnecki, the Mercatus Center's Vice President of Outreach, Karen asked Senior Research Fellow Brent Skorup how other countries have utilized commercial drones into their delivery systems and the governmental challenges that are preventing integration and utilization in the United States.
