This is the first episode of a three-episode series “Deep impact: COVID-19, surveillance technology & marginalised dentities”, developed in collaboration with Khabar Lahariya, the country’s only rural digital news network, which reports on issues that are far from the attention of national and regional media.
How did drone cameras help in containing the pandemic? Did they help at all? Were the people of Lalitpur aware of this kind of surveillance? What was the take of the local administration?
