South Korea celebrated and honored the sacrifices of all their health care workers with an epic drone light show. Over 300 synchronized drones lit up the night sky of Seoul, South Korea over their major river, Han River.
South Korea has been recognized over the world for taking early control over the COVID-19 outbreak. The country has experienced 60 new cases, with a total of 925 currently infected.
With that, the country’s Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, and Transport organized the event. They wanted to remind citizens of the precautionary measures and guidelines over the ongoing pandemic.
The Korea Institute of Aviation Safety Technology headed up the project. They said that they employed real-time kinematic (RTK) satellite positioning with additional antennae for their drones to increase the accuracy.
In the 10-minute show, the pre-programmed drones formed a series of images to encourage residents to remain vigilant and disciplined. One image showed a face mask surrounded by shapes that attribute to the coronavirus. This reinforces the mandate of properly wearing a face mask to lower the risk of transmission.
Another picture displayed a pair of hands below droplets of water, a remembrance for viewers to always wash their hands.
The next form appeared two people wearing face masks. They slowly move apart to observe the safe social distance.
And finally, they paid tribute to all health care workers. They showed medical staff wearing protective suits with a hashtag #ThanksToChallenge. This is based on a campaign in social media inviting people to share their message of gratitude to medical workers.
Let’s continue to honor the medical professionals for their sacrifices and hard work. We can support them through our prayers and fulfilling our role to stop the spread of the virus.
