Current Events in Medicine:

Researchers from Johns Hopkins University find that blood can be transported for up to 40 minutes (100 km/62 mi) on drones without being affected! This could be a big break through that is especially relevant to patients located in areas with poor road networks. Drones could be used by rural clinics to transport lab results back and forth. Drones cost less than motorcycles and can travel faster in the air, where they encounter absolutely no traffic. In addition, they can follow GPS coordinates, so they can be programmed to go to certain places at certain times.
