This is the time you need to use those quadrocopter drones to drop supplies to people in home quarantine. Maybe those drones could even do gardening.
Give the people some incentive by giving them iPads, iPhones to keep in touch with each other and pass the time.
If it's from the outside world and they drop supplies from drones with no chance of contamination I'm all for it. These people need help and no
government will do it.
Would Monrovia be able to support that many people powering ipads and iphones at once? I don't know and we'd also have to drop besides medicine,
food, water, clothing, disinfectant supplies, instructions, toys, blankets/bedding, cooking supplies, sanitation items like soap, toothpaste, shampoo,
deodorant, maybe tools, find a way to get generators, fuel if needed, etc. I'm thinking fuel and generators by drone would be difficult if not
impossible. Anyone know if it's even safe?
That's a huge thing requiring a highly coordinated effort so people know what to drop where, in what amount, where everybody's flying so it doesn't
cause problems with existing air traffic, other drones, public safety. Who received what and at what time, and despite many who are able to not panic
completely and maintain some sense of composure, many would try to get to those drone drop sites as quickly as possible.
I don't think citizens would ever be able to pull off giving them anything in noticeable amounts without help from well-funded, supplied and informed
charities and organizations (reputable ones that use most of the funds for their area of awareness and not for themselves, hard to find), experts in
logistics, health, drone operation, aviation experts I'm sure would help with flight plans, and maybe some governments. But other than that, sadly I
think these people are doomed in many ways.
