The coronavirus pandemic has gripped nations across the world. Half of 2020 is over, but there is no improvement in containing the spread of the virus. It is rather increasing each day. Medical professionals are working round the clock to help patients recover from COVID-19. Many countries have relaxed the lockdown restrictions, and it has increased the cases even more now. In early May, South Korea relaxed lockdown but later reimposed some coronavirus-related restrictions amid new local clusters in Seoul and the nearby Gyeonggi-do province. As the cases are rising, hundreds of drones have lit up the night sky in the South Korean capital, Seoul, for a spectacular showcase of motivational and awareness messages.
