The National Ministry of Land Infrastructure and Transportation coordinated a 10-minute synchronized light show that lit up the night sky over the Han River in the country’s capital, Seoul, on July 4.
The drones were used to create images of medical workers wearing protective equipment as well as images of hand washing, people wearing masks and people socially distancing themselves from each other.
To prevent large crowds from gathering to watch the show, the light show was not announced in advance.
While South Korea is often cited as an example of a country acting quickly to contain the spread of Covid-19, new clusters have emerged in the country.
“A mutated coronavirus has been detected in South Korea and an epidemic investigation team has been dispatched to Gwangju. It is worrying that the virus appears to be spreading faster than previous cases in Daegu and North Gyeongsang province, “said Kwon.
So far, South Korea has had 13,244 cases with 11,970 people released from quarantine, 989 people currently in quarantine and 285 deaths, according to the country’s CDC.
