The South Korean government organized a drone light show to commend its front line health workers for their effort in curbing Coronavirus.

The event which took place last Friday, at Han River, Seoul was to also remind citizens to observe safety measures against COVID-19. The 10-minute show with a total of 300 drones was organized by the Ministry of Land, Infrastructure and Transport.

The light display commenced with messages reminding citizens to wear face masks, wash their hands, and observe social distancing rules.

The display continued with a message of gratitude to doctors, nurses, and other medical staff.


At the end of the display, the drones formed an outline of the Korean Peninsula overlaid with the message: “Cheer up, Republic of Korea.”
