India on Monday inaugurated a drone-based vaccine delivery service, using a robotic flying machine to ferry Covid-19 vaccines to a health centre in Manipur and adopting a technology already commercialised for medical supplies in other countries.

Union health minister Mansukh Mandaviya launched the drone service’s first flight, an aerial distance of about 15km from Bishnupur district hospital to Karang island in Loktak lake, where 10 people received the first dose and eight received the second dose.
