    This video was filmed on-location in Rwanda along with Brian from Real Engineering and Joseph from Real Life Lore.

    Brian made a great video covering how these drones were developed and some more of the engineering aspects behind them: https://youtu.be/jEbRVNxL44c

    Joseph also made a great video about the huge ebola outbreak in Rwanda’s neighbor, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and how drones like the ones used in Rwanda could be used, on a conceptual level, to help fight epidemics like this one: https://youtu.be/2AvtbRndNxk

    I disagree that this drone solution is a bandage solution until transport infrastructure improves. I think this is a modern solution that even countries with transport infrastructure could implement.

    As per your UK example, surely these drones could deliver Blood products father than trucks and prevent the need for medical stockpiles and waste of precious blood resources.

    Definitely not EMTs in California. Where I live you can't even initiate CPAP.

    I am very close to crying. A small country (in size) can overcome one of the horrific genocides in the world and be one of the leaders of the continent now. And here we are, Somalis, unable to fix our issues. We cannot even make our capital save. We have no oil, gold, nor any natural resource to fight over. We are one race, one religion, one language. I don't know honestly what and why we are fighting over. Majority of the Somalis want peace and progression but we have had horrible, selfish rulers who are here to just collect millions without care in the world for their country and their people. Forgive me for being emotional but when I hear the success of Rwanda (and I am proud for them) I cannot help but think of my country – What Can I do to be the change I want?

    It's amazing that a country like this is skipping over certain types of technology altogether and are pushing into the information technology space as fast as it find a use for some kinds of advanced services

    There is a little problem and there is an error that should be fixed, the shelf life for frozen plasma is 1 year and thawed plasma is ~1 day. The video shows the shelf life for thawed plasma, not frozen plasma, and the shelf life for plasma is not necessarily a problem because it has a long shelf life when frozen, the shelf life for frozen plasma should at least be added.

    This is actually crazy. Other nations should take inspiration from Zipline and set up their own drone delivery systems too!

    Well the idea is amazing and its give me a immense pleasure that technolgy is solving the real life problems

    But i have one doubt
    1)even the blood is needed in rural areas but the blood will ve tramsufed only by tier 1 hospitals
    Isn't that sad tier 1 hospitals are not connected with necessary road facilities
    Is that type of service can be applied in countries like india
