Drones were filmed images of deserted cities in Paris, Lille (Nord), Lyon (Rhône), or even Strasbourg (Haut-Rhin). In Marseille, in the Bouches-du-Rhône, the drone is used to ensure compliance with confinement. “It is a voice that is recorded and which incites people to return to their homes if they do not have the certificates”, says Stéphane Brunoni, police commissioner in Marseille.
The system informs residents to stay at home in order to limit the spread of Covid-19. In France, confinement has been in force for a week and should continue for several weeks. Almost 2.6 billion people are confined to the world to fight the virus. France has passed the 1,000 dead mark of Covid-19 since the start of the epidemic wave.
