Turkish police have employed the help of drones in enforcing COVID-19 precautions, although the machines still require an officer to be onsite to navigate it.
A video shared by journalist Hilmi Hacaloğlu shows a police drone in Istanbul's bustling Eminönü district warning the public.
"I'm a police drone! For your safety, please wear a mask!" the machine is hear saying, while officers stand nearby.
While police had previously used drones to enforce curfews, the machines' employment in enforcing precautions seems redundant, as an officer is needed to be onsite to fly it anyway.
