Creepy Orwellian U.K. Police Surveillance Drones Command Citizens ‘Stay In Your Homes’
Authorities in the UK have begun using drones with loud speakers to direct the public to comply with public health measures announced on Monday to allegedly limit the spread of the novel coronavirus:
On Thursday, the Neath Port Talbot Council, which serves the Welsh towns of Neath and Port Talbot, said it is working with local police and the Safer Neath Port Talbot Community Partnership to deploy drones "to distribute public information" in the area.
The police and community groups say they're focusing areas where people are not following government social distancing recommendations.
"The drones are equipped with speakers that will transmit messages directly to the public," said the Neath Port Talbot Council via Twitter. "We are reminding residents to stay at home except for: shopping for necessities, obtaining medical supplies, one period of daily exercise, and traveling to and from essential work."
