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

This is incredible and could help immensely in my home of Jamaica where there are many mountain and gully paths that get very treacherous and dangerous for large portions of the year! As someone who has needed medical aid in Jamaica and received incredible personal and professional help, I saw how lacking the logistics and infrastructure were. The people themselves were amazing, they all work so hard to help as many people as possible with what little they have. The nurses were working out of a mop closet so that the nurses office could be used for a patient on quarantine, and the staff all were donating blood daily to keep themselves and the local hospitals stocked. It was absolutely incredible to see how strong and optimistic they all were and I'm positive something like this could help them a ton! I love science and technology and I'm proud of what humans can accomplish when they actually give a shit or two. It's just sad how few of us have any shits to give.

Video glosses over the fact that this is a really dumb solution about the equivalent of deploying a heat seeking missile to kill a mosquito and billing dirt poor Rwandese for it. To put it in context Rwanda is about the size of Massachusetts and there is no area so remote that it isnt accessible by motor bike within two hours from an urban or semi urban area. The company Zipline that provides these drones is bunch of crooks scheming to steal donor funds and government funds from poor African countries with bone headed ideas like these!

I can assure you 99.99 percent of EMS services are not doing blood transfusions in the field. The cost of blood and it’s very particular conditions needed to maintain all its normal properties are nearly impossible to maintain in an unstable environment such as an ambulance. Not to mention it would be enough to bankrupt the vast majority of EMS services.

Sounds nice, but it does feel like you've uncritically taken over what they say. 'First, they inspect the drone for any damage' and you see the employees just looking around a bit.

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.
